Fire Bellied Newts are handsome black lizards from the top, and truly beautiful from the bottom. While they can seem out of place or rarely seen in their terrarium if it is not well designed, if they are carefully housed they are easy to care for in a small space. Newts are one of the few caged animals that actually do better without too much room. They aren't the most astute at finding their prey, and so it is best if they have limited area to search. They prefer some shallow water to swim in. They will use the path of least resistance, so create a terrarium that leads them away from the glass to avoid their running up against it.
