Don’t think small

When I think of salamanders I think of the little guys you can hold in your hand. Not so with this one. Japanese giant salamanders weigh about 55 pounds and are five feet long! The Chinese giant salamander is even larger.

Japanese giant salamanders have mottled black, brown and cream, and heavily wrinkled skin. These harmless creatures can breathe both on land and underwater.
