The Greatest Greater Siren (Siren lacertina) - Rufus Siren lacertina is an amazing #paedomorphic species which retains some juvenile characters into adulthood. An aquatic species, they can respire through their gills as well as gulp air from the surface. Rufus is over the feet long, and about as thick as a soda can. #Siren #Sirenlacertina #Sirenidae #neoteny #neotenic #salamander #hugesalamander
