A huge, rare salamander was discovered lurking in a cave in south-west China. The huge beast, which looks more like some kind of terrifying sea creature measures an estimated four-feet and seven-inches long and probably weighs a little over 110 lbs.
Experts believe the huge amphibian to be over 200-years-old.
Giant salamanders are incredibly rare, and are listed as a critically endangered species.
The Daily Mail reports that in Chinese culture the giant salamander is considered a luxury food and element of traditional medicines.
Despite being a protect species, this does put the rare creatures at even greater risk of poachers.
