Native to China, this species is the largest amphibian in the world growing over 6 feet long and weighing up to 60 lbs. Like most salamanders, the giant salamander is nocturnal. Their diet consists of aquatic vertebrates as well as insects and crabs. Loss of habitat and pollution from human encroachment, as well as being considered a delicacy in the Chinese culture has attributed to this species becoming very rare.
