Nature is fantastic and life-affirming. It can also be extremely grotesque and disturbing at times.
A Giant Salamander Out of Water
The Japanese giant salamander is the second largest salamander in the world. Their preferred habitat is in rivers, where they can move a little more gracefully underwater. They are an impressive two meters (6.5 feet) in length.
This salamander was found enjoying the sun during a slow-paced stroll. However, he scared some folks and required a police escort back to his home in the Kamogawa River.
