Tylototriton anguliceps - Klingon Newt
The newt as discovered by National Geographic researchers working in the Greater Mekong area of Asia in 2015. The angular-headed newt (Tylototriton anguliceps), also known as angular-headed crocodile newt, is a species of salamander in the family Salamandridae from Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam.
Its unique orange markings help to distinguish it from other species, and also gave it the nickname "Star-Trek newt" due to its unique pattern of ridges marking its skull, similar to the Klingon species from the television show Star Trek.
