Chinese Fire-belly Newt

These newts are a cold water species and may need special attention when feeding, this is why I do not recommend letting children own this type of amphibian. They require a temp of 65-77 degrees because they come from the cold water streams of China, but will do quite fine at room temp for short periods of time.
