Chinese Giant Salamander – Songs for Unusual Creatures

In this episode of Songs for Unusual Creatures, Michael Hearst visits the Los Angeles Zoo‘s Chinese Giant Salamander. This is the world’s largest salamander and the world’s largest extant amphibian, growing up to six feet long. It has a history that goes back 170 million years — that’s long before Tyrannosaurus Rex, who roamed the planet 67 to 65 million years ago, and way before the theremin and stylophone were invented.
