Recently I have been speculating about the possibility of the existence up until, say, at least the 1920s of the giant salamander in Hong Kong. Today I found the following inconclusive evidence from The China Mail in 1910:
THE CHINA MAIL
THE FOUR-LEGGED FISH
Some time ago we made mention of a “four legged fish” in possession of the Chinese Mail. We have now been supplied with one of these interesting creatures from our Chinese contemporary. About two feet in length, possessing four legs and a rather long flat tail, it somewhat resembles a young crocodile. Anyone interested can see the strange creature at the China Mail office, where it is on view. (1)
