So while I recently posted about the hellbenders here in the Ozarks (see the post Hell(bender) of a day), it turns out that their relatives out east also have some help. That’s according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Bronx Zoo Team Helps Hellbender Salamanders Go Home” by Will James. It’s nice to know that both the St. Louis Zoo and the Bronx Zoo are working together to help them out.
I also found this website, entitled www.hellbenders.org, that gives lots of great information and reading for those interested in learning about hellbenders. It’s good to see that the Hellbender has lots of friends.
