Truck Driver Rescues A Rare Albino Fawn From The Middle Of The Road

A truck driver was driving through the rice fields of Yolo County, Sacramento, when he came across a white mound in the middle of the road. Quickly swerving to avoid hitting it, he continued on for a split second until he saw another truck behind him swerve as well. The truck driver decided to turn around and investigate but was confused as to what the white mound was, upon closer inspection.  

As first, he thought it was a lamb or maybe some type of goat, but he heard it mew, like a cat. He called up Kindred Spirits Fawn Rescue center and sent the center's President, Diane Nicholas, a photo of the animal. 

Nicholas told LA Times, "He said, 'I don't know what I've got, I said, 'Oh, my gosh, that's an albino fawn!'"

The Chinese salamander is a very rare nocturnal salamander that lives in lakes and streams in the mountains of China. This one is believed to be at least 200-years-old. It measures 4 feet 7 inches long and weighs 104 pounds. These animals are becoming increasingly endangered due to habitat loss. 

Maybe that's why this giant was found in a cave in Chongqing Municipality in China. He's since been transferred to a research facility. You can really tell how big he is here with a scientist for scale:
