Rare Giant Salamanders Found in Washnigton

A water works crew for the Washington state city of Newcastle were shocked to find two Pacific giant salamanders.

The creatures are said to be rare to begin with and are nocturnal and elusive. However, several residents note they are familiar with the species and used to see them quite often in the 90s. The city has decided to post signs around drains requesting no dumping. The signs will bear logos of salmon and giant salamanders.

[NOTE: I know I could look it up, but I am a little busy; I included the "amphibians" tag but I do not know for certain that salamanders are amphibians. If I am wrong, please let me know. Thanks!]
