fusillade762: Giant salamanders can grow up to 6 feet (2 meters) long and live up to 100 years. To learn more about the history of these Goliaths, which nowadays dwell in East Asia and North America

What?? I want one!




They must be talking of hellbenders in N. America.....somehow I didn't think they were taxonomically speaking a "salamander", but I'm too lazy to google it.

Creepy looking farkers will make ya jump when you first see one in a stream, we sometimes (accidentally) catch one when we fish really clean headwater streams.

Couple years back a buddy's boys were swimming in the Greenbier when they came hauling arse outta the river screaming they found a monster....we didn't give it much credence until I went underwater and saw it....Going eye-to-eye with one is at first a little startling.

The Chinese and Japanese giant salamanders can get up to like 6 feet long (where over half of a salamanders length is tail so thats not as big as it sounds) The hellbender of north america gets up to a little over 2 feet long

Big whoop. There used to be giant, six-foot beavers too. You don't see them attention-seeking like this...
