As cute as this salamander is and as huge as it gets, the fact still remains that this is an endangered species and lives only in the areas of the ocean that immediately surround Japan.

@sea mystice: Salamanders, especially this one, don't live in saltwater. The Japanese Giant salamander is not the largest, but in fact it's cousin, the Chinese Giant Salamander is the largest salamander. However, with their dwindling numbers, the Japanese Giant Salamander may soon be the only one left.
