    its hard to tell from the photo's but i would guess

    hong kong warty newt (Paramesotriton hongkongensis ) these are the most common warty newt

    tam doa warty newt (Paramesotriton deloustali) these are pretty rare in captivity

    japanese fire bellied newt (Cynops pyrrhogaster) which look at bit like the pictures and are common in captivity and the belly pattern can vary alot bettween the different "races" (see

    they are definatly not chinese fire bellys, they have the wrong shaped heat and are warty when chinese fbns are smooth.

    It looks like a fire belly newt but you can ask your local pet store they should be able to tell you for sure.
