Fire Belly Newt For Sale
In the family Salamandridae, you’ll find the distinctly Japanese fire belly newt (Cynops pyrrhogaster). Due to its size and pigmentation, the Chinese fire belly newt (Cynops orientalis ) is sometimes mistaken for the Japanese variety and sold as such. Almost every living thing, including humans, will die from exposure to this within 6 hours.
Fire Belly Newt For Sale Appearance
Often measuring 9-14 cm (3.5-5.5 in) in length, this newt is easily distinguishable from its Chinese counterpart by its bigger size, rough and pebbly skin, and conspicuous parotoid glands. They have a brown to black upper body with red spots or specks and an orange to crimson under body with a blotched, deeper pattern. The dilated cloacae of a male are a telltale sign that he is a male of this species of newt, and during mating season, the skin of males of this species takes on an iridescent blue hue and becomes smoother.
This species may be found in ponds, ditches, pools, and lakes in the islands of Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu, where the water is clean and chilly. Atsumi, Hiroshima, Kanto, Sasayama, and Touhoku are reportedly six of the subspecies found across the Japanese islands.
While these newts are venomous in the wild, captive-bred individuals may develop immunity. The skin of these wild animals is loaded with tetrodotoxin (TTX), one of the most potent nonpeptide toxins currently understood. It’s a neurotoxic that may lead to death by asphyxia in as little as six hours after intake, and there’s currently no treatment for it. Some captive newts are less dangerous than their wild counterparts because the toxin may be generated by ambient microorganisms.
