i am a regular on the snakes section and have no idea when it comes to amphibians.
i was recently in france on a fishing trip in the limousin region. whilst walking to the toilet in the dark i was confronted by what looked like some sort of newt. it was probably 6-8 inches long with a jet black body and had several bright yellow blotches on its back
just interested to know what it was?
any suggestions much appreciated

so by fire does that mean that it has some sort of poisonous skin or something.

just looked on the web and apparently is because they would come running out of logs when they were thrown on the fire so people thought they were born from the fire. interesting
