UPDATE: The tadpole titan affectionately known as “Goliath” died in 2019, according to a tweet written on May 26, 2020 by herpetologist Earyn McGee; she introduced Twitter to Goliath in 2018, when this article was originally published. Scientists with the Southwestern Research Station in Arizona preserved the tadpole and are studying it to better understand its unusual size and morphology, according to the tweet.
