Once I went to an aquarium in Asia and was surprised to find a pool full of "Hellbenders." Giant salamanders. And I mean GIANT. They can be up to five feet long. They're amazing creatures. In China, people say that they will make a call like a baby, trying to lure people into the swamps. Creepy.
Here's some info about the Japanese version:
And here is recent video from some researchers who say that the salamanders use their jaws to create suction to pull fish into their mouths.
More Wonderful Wednesday awaits.
