The Emperor Newt, also called the Mandarin Newt, lives in high altitude ponds and streams in China's Yunan province.
It can grow to 20cm length.
Like its relative, the Himalayan Newt, the brownish spots, stripes and legs are usually bright orange, warning that the newt
is highly toxic. A poison is ejected from the spots on its back when the newt is squeezed or squeezes itself.
