Fire-bellied Toad

Fire-bellied toads are one of the most colourful and hardy amphibians. They are commonly a shade of green or dark brown with black spots, with the signature orange/red and black stomach. Their colouration is meant as a warning to predators of a foul taste.

These toads can be found in Europe and in areas of Asia. They spend most of their time in the water, though they do occasionally enjoy basking on land. They are quite active and at times can be quite vocal. They can live from three to ten years in captivity, sometimes as long as twenty years.
