In 2014 a giant salamander emerged from the Kamo River in Japan. Landed appearances of the giant creature are considerably rare due to them making their home underwater and being only active at night. Japanese giant salamanders are the second-largest salamanders on Earth, surpassed only by the closely related Chinese giant salamander. They feed on insects, frogs, crabs, shrimp, and fish; but since the 1950s, their population has declined rapidly due to habitat destruction and overhunting.
Endangered Asian Forest tortoise happens to be declining in population like a lot of other reptiles. The main cause of their decline is because of the pet trade and habitat destruction. Together we can achieve more for these reptiles when we join Wildlife Conservation Society. #tortoise #turtle #reptile #endangered #conservationchart #conservation #conserve #save #fight #help #wildlifewednesday #wildlife #environment #rainforest #asianforesttortoise #parulina
Even though River Otters are not listed as Endangered species, their range has been greatly reduced over the years by habitat destruction and they are vulnerable to pollution and toxins in the environment.
