The Japanese giant salamander typically isn't something you spot in the wild a lot, but after heavy flooding or rainfall, the third-largest amphibian in the world sometimes shows up in Western Japan, wowing locals.

But now thanks to oddity shop and bookstore Village Vanguard, fans of the big amphibian no longer have to wait for a rare wild encounter--they can wear it with a realistic giant salamander backpack!

The Japanese giant salamander really looks like the actual deal, with its unique pattern and curly eyes reproduced down to detail. It's arms wrap around your shoulders as if the salamander is actually clinging on to you!

Of course, it has a zipper on it's stomach so you can open it up and store your goods.

The Japanese giant salamander backpack is available to order in Japan from Village Vanguard.
