Of a lot of proposed uncatalogued animals, this is probably one with the most going for it in terms of actually existing. Salamanders are pretty tenacious animals so hopefully these giants can hold over the amphibian "crisis" long enough to be scientifically recognized.

Yeah. It'd be a shame if these guys went extinct, especially before they could be catalogued by science.

Huh... never heard of this one. Gotta say though, it really isn't much of a stretch for something like this to exist.

It wouldn't be too far of a stretch.

Mainly the size, since there are no North American salamanders that get that big (The Hellbender is large, but way under 9 ft).

Not sure, I don't know much about this cryptid. From what I hear though, they don't look much like Hellbenders. Plus I'm not sure if they're even native to California.

Cool! Ya, a nine foot salamander is not too "Far out" to be plausible, including the location it is said to inhabit. I wouldn't want to run into one though....

Yeah. Escaping it wouldn't be too difficult, but I'd hatee to think of what it'd feel like to get bitten by one. African bull frogs can take off fingers, so a nine foot salamander.... eesh!

Ya, Japanese Salamanders can too. Don't know if Hellbenders can. That and they use the same "death roll" method as crocs do, definately don't want to get caught in that!

Yeah, Rojo and Aka death roll as well. Really, really vigorously, I might add... They may be small, but I never want either one of them to get ahold of my finger while I'm feeding them. XD

True, salamanders are more vicious than people give em credit for. Especially yours! Lol.
