    They are all female, males have a large crest. Check out this article on Wikipedia: Great Crested Newt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Latin name is: Triturus cristatus, If you have warty newts, which it looks like you do.
    My name is Jen.

    They look like Japanese Fire Belly Newts to me.

    yes, they look very similar to japanese FBN to me... they have the same coloring and the ridge on their back, and obviously the belly, but I'm not an expert on amphibians.
