FIRE BELLIED TOADS

SCIENTIFIC NAME:  Bombina orientalis

HABITAT: This species is found in China, North Korea, South Korea, and regions of Russia.  Inhabits lowlands, forests, open meadows, river valleys, and swampy

bushlands. This species can adapt to modified habitats.

CONSERVATION STATUS:   Least Concern

FUN FACT:  If attacked or threatened, fire bellied toads will perform an arching backbend called the ”unken reflex”; this maneuver exposes their brightly colored underbellies. 

FIND ME IN THE ZOO:
