Giant salamander spotted on walk to school

A rare giant salamander has been spotted by a boy on his way to school in 

Yu, a high school student in Kyoto, saw the creature slithering along the path by a river bank.
He filmed the salamander and asked police to guard it until it went back into the river.
Yu said: "I was just walking without really paying any attention to it but once I got close to it, it started to move"
"That's when I realized it was this giant salamander".
Japanese giant salamanders are amphibious, meaning they live on land and in water, and can grow up to 150 cm.
