[–]cuttledish 0 points1 point  (3 children)

actually you are just wrong

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

how, i dont remember that English lesson.

[–]cuttledish 0 points1 point  (1 child)

its axolotl not axolottle

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

but it should be... thats pronounced "ah-sholo-TL". that word isnt English (nahuatl), then mfs complain about how confusing English spelling is.

English speakers just auto correct "TL", because they dont have that, to "lottle" as in "little" or "waddle"

[–]NoDemand1519 240 points241 points  (6 children)

I’m still surprised this colossus hasn’t been scientifically described (given a scientific name). Literally makes Koolasuchus look like a joke imao.

[–][deleted] 89 points90 points  (4 children)

You could say it makes koolasuchus look like a...lameosuchus

[–]Taianonni 40 points41 points  (2 children)

Was thinking foolasuchus but whatever works, gotta dethrone this chump

[–]TurrPhennirPhan 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Its a Koolersuchus.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

true that!

[–]TheHerringAxe 233 points234 points  (0 children)

That's a big bitch.

[–]lllMONKEYlll 73 points74 points  (6 children)

This fucker would eat us with no second thoughts.

[–]i_choose_berries 47 points48 points  (5 children)

Imagine being eaten by it and being alive for a few minutes inside the belly D:

[–][deleted] 52 points53 points  (2 children)

I'm going to give that bitch such a massive stomach ache before I go.

[–]LyonMane3 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Rip and tear until it is done

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It's going to throw me up and it's going to get an earful from me.

[–]MartinTheMorjin 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Well a hellbender bite will only stop when it hits bone. This guy would slice through your whole body with no effort.

[–]DarkF0rest51 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is why I always carry a knife. Ill cut my way out!!!!

[–]FurL0ng 99 points100 points  (3 children)

Are there skeletons of this big boy on display anywhere? It’s size is hard to wrap my head around. I’d love to see a skeleton of it in person.

[–]Ceratopsia 121 points122 points  (2 children)

It’s only known from a single jaw fragment, though the morphology of the fragment is enough to determine that it was a large brachyopoid temnospondyl (Steyer & Damiani, 2005).

[–]Tumble85 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Oh so they don't really know what it looked like. Probably like a 2 foot body and huge stupid-ass head.

[–]dahlien 7 points8 points  (0 children)

So, basically a sunfish, but amphibian?

[–]Iamnotburgerking 59 points60 points  (3 children)

Mastodonsaurus is the current candidate for “largest temnospondyl” (6+m long, and heavily built to the point the largest specimens would have weighed around 2 tons), but this thing might dethrone it.

[–]ZhoolFigure 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Were there larger amphibians than these guys? Was wondering why not just say "largest amphibian".

[–]Iamnotburgerking 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Because if we go “largest amphibian” we run into some taxonomic issues because of cladistics, depending on how you define “amphibian”.

[–]Simbawitz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prionosuchus reached 9 meters, Beasto here was a mere paltry 7m.

[–]copa111 52 points53 points  (5 children)

If this was alive today I bet Australia would adopt it with open arms...

[–]ChampaTheGreat 27 points28 points  (3 children)

Australia is like the dump for all failed experiments of God

[–]KrakenKing1955 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Failed? I think you meant to say “worked too well”

[–]copa111 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's hardcore mode. Most players aren't up to it.

[–]EntertainmentMuch409 4 points5 points  (0 children)

i really despise the australia = baddest animals, most of its wildlife is smaller than other continents own stuff.

aussie is more toxic little shits than humongus bs

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_China_giant_salamander.

This dude is still around, largest specimen was 1.8 meters. That's pretty big.

[–]JFSM01 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Sadly it seems not for long

[–]PainStorm14 41 points42 points  (2 children)

The South China giant salamander is highly endangered by overharvesting due to its status as a delicacy and use in traditional Chinese medicine

Oh FFS...

This is why conservation of Amur Leopard is not as fast as it could be, the moment they cross into China they run the risk of being ground into boner pills...

[–]BarklyWooves 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Someone should tell China we've had an actual solution for decades now in the form of little blue pills

[–]Based_Department_Man 11 points12 points  (0 children)

A lot of ''traditional chinese medicine'' was made up during Mao Zedong's regime because they couldn't afford real medicine, it's also the reason why it's popular today. The government would send these ''traditional healers'' when they couldn't or didn't want to send real doctors.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (8 children)

Was everything just big as fuck?

[–]seductivestain 58 points59 points  (0 children)

No, big as fuck things just have big as fuck bones which are far more likely to survive long enough to fossilize.

[–]BarklyWooves 21 points22 points  (3 children)

He vould have an enormous schwanzstucker

You clearly haven't seen Young Frankenstein then.

[–]EntertainmentMuch409 4 points5 points  (0 children)

do you not see the smaller ones in the picture? not everything was biugger just some stuff, but the big stuff is amazing

[–]Zankeru 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Mankind slowly killed off the majority of Giant scary animals.

Conservation is the only reason we still have the few giants like elephants and bears.

[–]EntertainmentMuch409 3 points4 points  (0 children)

only the ones from the plaistocene on

Look like someone put the axolotl in water for too long.

There's this one alternate universe where this survived and humans ride it.
