Ugliest and biggest salamander in the world

The Chinese giant salamander is the world’s largest amphibian, growing up to 1.8 metres long, with a large tail comprising almost 60% of the body length. It has even been reported in 1983 that a 3-metre, 70 kg salamander was purchased at a local market in China. There are only three living species of giant salamander in the family Cryptobranchidae: the Chinese giant salamander, the Japanese giant salamander, and the American hellbender. This type of salamander is also ugly as hell, even as a youngster.
