Bombina orientalis (Oriental firebelly toad)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Oriental fire-bellied toad (Bombina orientalis) is a small (4 cm, 2") semiaquatic frog species found in Korea, northeastern China, and adjacent parts of Russia. An introduced population exists near Beijing. They are commonly kept as pets in land and water vivaria. B. orientalis is also known as the 'tuti toad'. It may properly be referred to as a frog, despite its common name, because of the tubercles on its back.
