See Monster Fish with Arms and Hands Eat children

Is there really a fish with "arms and hands" eating children in the waters of Japan? Jeremy Wade recalls the events surrounding the capture of a Japanese giant salamander.

Japanese Salamander

At almost 5 feet (1.5 meters) in length, the Japanese giant salamander resides in streams and rivers on Kyushu Island and western Honshu in Japan. The only thing scary about this creature is its looks. Its skin color is mottled gray, black and cream, and its body is covered in mucus to protect him from parasites and from injury. One of the world's two largest salamanders (the other is the Chinese salamander), conservationists have named the Japanese giant salamander a special "natural monument" in Japan.
