Eating wawa yu on National Geographic

Dangerous Encounters: Clash of the Giant Salamanders

I received an email from a friend a few days ago. Re: What are you doing eating wa wa yu on National Geographic??

Ah, must be that program last year where we were caught on camera with a Steve Irwin-type croc hunter. Yes, Brady Barr is the new croc hunter on Nat Geo and this time, the crew is in China to find 'wawa yu'. In order to find a salamander or 'wawa yu' and film it on a plate in a restaurant, they had to pack a take-away from one restaurant and bring the dish to another restaurant to film. I was lucky enough to get called over for a free lunch by the local field producers.

For 2 little salamander paws that cost 2000RMB, I was adventurous enough to check out what the fuss is all about. Tastes like pig trotters.
