Chinese Giant Salamander

All too often, endangered animals are glamorized. I’ve ranted about how the less-impressive endangered species get so little press before. Sometimes, however, this favoritism is wholly unjustified… Size is not the only thing unique about this river monster. Chinese giant salamanders are also among the few salamanders that make noise. They can whine, hiss, and bark; they may even sound like human babies to some Chinese people. They also have special sensory nodes that run from head to tail in compensation for awful eyesight. Neat.

* although i believe that last picture is Dr. Brady Barr holding a Japanese Giant Salamander (Andrias japonicus), and not a Chinese (A. davidianus)

Nope.  Nope. No way. This cannot possibly be a real thing.

…can it?
