So excited to see a Root Lab alum doing such important work.Check out this article:
A Homecoming for Hellbenders
Greg Lipps is apart of a reintroduction program that is adding captive raised hellbenders into Ohio streams to try and help the threatened population. The eastern hellbender in this picture is speckled and situated horizontally between the rocks.  They are a large fully aquatic salamander, growing to 10 - 15 inches, with another 10 inches of tail. They can be darker or lighter color than shown here, and with or without speckles/spots. Read the NY times article to find out more!
