Monsters are typically thought of as large, ugly and terrifying creatures, mostly imaginary because of its degree of terrifying – monsters are so frightening they’ll typically only exist in the imagination! Thus, most experts will say that there’s no such thing as real monsters. However, it is likely they say that only because they’ve never seen this horrifying creature!
Scientists exploring in China, recently found this enormous water-dwelling creature in a cave near Chongqing in China. Not only is it nearly five feet long and over 115 pounds, but researchers believe it could be over 200 years old! Even the ancient crocodile has a lifespan of only 70-100 years!
The strangest part is that it’s actually just a giant salamander! Salamanders are common amphibians, but the unusual thing about this breed of salamander is its tremendous size! These monstrous salamanders, like its smaller counterparts, are found in caves with flowing water and rocky streams.
Salamanders, both large and small, feed primarily on crustaceans, insects and even frogs. Some monstrous salamanders have been found that are almost six feet long! The salamander has many unique characteristics and you’ll never guess what’s one of the most unique ones…
Salamanders are practically blind! But despite being almost completely blind, these animals remain very effective hunters as they’re guided by highly sensitive nodes that nature placed along their body, which allow them to detect the tiniest vibrations and changes in the water.
They’re also one of the few creatures to feature ‘negligible senescence,’ which means they don’t age biologically! That’s right, salamanders have somehow discovered the fountain of youth!
