Information about the Emperor Newt:
Emperor newts - also called the Mandarin Newt or Mandarin Salamander - is a member of the family Salamandridae. It lives in a high, mountainous area of Yunnan, China. They are generally found in ponds or slow moving streams. They grow to be about 8 inches long (20cm) Their bright coloration is a warning to potential predators that they're highly toxic. The toxin in the newts body is released through the orange, warty bumps on its back. This toxic is so lethal it could potentially kill over 7000 mice. It is not especially harmful to human though, and if the newt is handled gently it will not release any toxins. The Emperor Newt feeds on small insects and other invertebrates. Due to habitat loss and climate change their numbers in the wild have been declining.
