I would love to see the pictures they made of the recently discribed Paramesotriton wulingensis in Fanjingshan. So far only a few pictures of these are available.

Thanks for those links - it does look very similar to P. caudopunctatus, at least dorsally!

Thank you Jay for sharing the video. I’ve seen a few large captive specimens in parks in western Hunan Province. On my next visit to Hunan, I hope to visit a breeding farm owned by someone my wife met during her last visit.

This species has in past been included in P.caudopunctatus, and is sister to what is now the more restricted concept of P.caudopunctatus.

Thanks for the post! Great video!
It's such a shame, such a shame for me as a Chinese herpetology student to see this video, specially the part where it shows tons of the salamanders in the farm but not even one in the field... The government never get serious in protecting the species: the top governors only knew see the number that are alive, but never care whether it's wild or captive population, which is a very serious problem in Chinese wildlife conservation. Same tragedy happened for Chinese alligator and Red-river giant soft-shell turtle.
Sincerely hope this kinda international coorperation could wave the CCP up and help save the giant!
Kai

That was amazing! typing the Chinese giant salamander into google it looks big .... then seeing that video it looks twice the size! they are really cool! ... Hope they don't go to the full extent of extinction ... However I don't understand how some of the Chinese population can care about them but eat them too? :S in my opinion I think il stick to chicken.

Thankyou for sharing ^^
