Hell(bender) of a day

For this post, I guess the title says it all. Seems every year my kids and I get involved in Amphibian Night with the Missouri Department of Conservation around late April.

Anyway, the person leading that event is Jeff Ettling, a Herpetologist with the department and each year he also mentions one of his pet projects, the Hellbender project, in conjunction with the St. Louis Zoo.

Well, I was just looking at the Saturday edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch today at work and what do I see but an article entitled “On a Hellbender” by Joe Holleman.

It seems one of the projects volunteers recently won the prestidous Joseph Laszlo Memorial Award, given out to the person who advances the field of herpetology. Way to go Chawna Schuette!

Okay, this time I mean it.

Sleep Tight!
