Now I feel dumb!

Well I am planning on getting some fire belly newts this week.I had them when I was a kid,but didn't know too much back then.I do know how to care for them and all of the basics.


I was updating my info on them and found out there are TWO species of fire bellied newts! Chinese and Japanese! But I don't know how to tell them apart.They look the same to me from all the pictures!


Help! What is the difference?
I feel dumb now!

I don't know if you have been to this site before, but it's the best in salamanders and newts... here you can see the descriptions and caresheets of both firebellies and in the description it tells you the difference between them.
