京都でオオサンショウウオ発見

Japanese giant salamander Discovered in Kyoto

“Japanese giant salamanders” are very rare creatures and have been designated in a special natural monument.

Although it rarely is seen in nature, a giant salamander 70 cm of length was discovered at a agricultural waterway in Nantan, Kyoto in May.

A person who works at a farm rescued it with a net and a tub.

Apparently it seemed to have flowed from the nearby river in heavy rain.

The rescued Japanese giant salamander was released into the upstream of the rive by the municipal employee in Kyoto and went back to nature.

特別天然記念物に指定されている「オオサンショウウオ」はとても珍しい生き物です。
滅多に自然の中で見ることができませんが、
5月に京都の南丹市の農業用水路で
体長70センチのオオサンショウウオが発見されました。
農作業をしていた人が見つけ、網やたらいで救出しました。
どうやら大雨で近くの川から流れ込んできたようです。
救出されたオオサンショウウオは京都市の職員が
川の上流へ放流し、自然に戻っていきました。
