Red-tailed Knobby Newt - Tylototriton kweichowensis
Endemic to Yunnan–Guizhou Plateau (China), the Red-tailed Knobby Newt, Tylototriton kweichowensis (Salamandridae), is classed as Vulnerable amphibian by IUCN. Recently, habitat destruction and degradation are major threats to this species.
These robust newts are up to 160 mm in total length for males, with females measuring up to 190 mm. Its dorsum has large grainy tubercles, more densely packed along three evenly spaced strips, running from head to tail dorsally and on either side dorsolaterally. Individuals vary in coloration, but the large parotid glands, tips of toes, tail, and bumpy strips are red or orange in some animals.

"Knobby" seems awfully appropriate for this guy.
Also, he seems like a design from How to Train Your Dragon.
