The Near Eastern fire salamander is a particular amphibian species found in Israel, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon. Only clear or moving bodies of water are home to the venomous amphibian known as the black and yellow spotted fire salamander.
Being a shy species, it spends a lot of time hiding in shaded nooks, beneath logs, or in other locations that will offer cover and moisture. Among other things, its food consists of beetles, millipedes, and flies. These animals are vulnerable to environmental toxins. The fragmentation of habitat is another problem.
