Oriental Fire bellied Toad (Bombina orientalis) They secrete toxins from their skin, and they let potential predators to know it. When threatened, they rise up on their front legs and arch their back, sometimes even flipping themselves over completely, to reveal the bright red-and-black coloration of their underside. This behavior, known as the unken reflex, warning predators of possible dire consequences.
