Native Salamanders That Can Grow Up To 2-Feet-Long Have Been Released Back Into Ohio Waters

A rare species is officially making a comeback in Ohio. Earlier this year, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources released the Eastern Hellbender back into Ohio waters. It’s an endangered species that might seem unusual to spot at first glance due to its large size for a salamander, but its role is actually quite vital to the Buckeye State’s ecosystems.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
