The Japanese Giant Salamander is one big amphibian. They can reach a length of almost five feet and weigh up to 65lbs. Eating isn’t a priority to these creatures because of their slow metabolisms, so they can go for weeks without nourishment if they need to, but when they do eat, it’s a sight to see. They catch fish, smaller salamanders, worms, insects, crayfish and snails with a rapid sideways snap of the mouth.
