Cool Amphibians

A Giant Chinese Salamander -
the world's largest amphibian!

It can reach the size of human—almost 6 feet (1.8 meters) in length.
It's also a distant relative of the... newt.

A few other extremely fascinating amphibians shown here:

"Little is known about the purple frog... it spends most of its time deep underground, up to 13 feet (4 meters) below the surface -



"The Olm - is the see-through critter, which lives in subterranean caves, is blind and hunts down prey using a keen sense of smell as well as sensors that can detect weak electrical fields." -
