Oriental Firebellied Toad (Bombina orientalis)


Common Name: Oriental Firebellied Toad
Scientific Name: Bombina orientalis
Family: Bombinatoridae
Location: Korea, Japan, China, and Russia
Size: 1.5 inches or 4 cm

The Oriental Fire Bellied Toad is a common toad in the pet trade. They are relatively easy to take care of for a frog or toad.

Their bellies are red / orange colored. When attacked by a predator they often roll over and show off the belly to warn that they are toxic.

I own 3 fire bellied toads. Here’s a video of me feeding one.
