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.
