Kaiser's Spotted Newt
Kaiser's Spotted Newt, Neurergus kaiseri, is a native of the southern Zagros Mountains in Iran. However, habitat loss and collecting for the pet trade have apparently eliminated this newt from the wild. This one was being shown by one of the booths at Microcosm, a show highlighting small animals and plants.
