"Beautiful, awesome, and disgusting," is how I like to describe the Chinese Giant Salamander--the largest amphibian on the planet, reaching lengths of up to six feet.
Join me as I travel to the Los Angeles Zoo to meet a Chinese Giant Salamander, and then watch me perform and song inspired by this unusual creature on some of my favorite unusual instruments--theremin and stylophone.
