The Yellow Bellied Toad is found in Europe. Like the Fire Bellied Toad, they have a brightly colored stomach to show off that they are toxic but its yellow on the bottom.

The Yellow Bellied Toad can live a long time – 15 years in the wild and more than 20 in captivity. They live this long because water can be scarce in their environment so they need more time to breed.
