grimlock1972: Am the only one when the read the fark headline and saw Ozark Hellbender and pictured and epic Moonshine tasting party?
JackieRabbit: smitty04: There are more important things than the Allegheny alligator, devil dog, mud devil, snot otter or leverian water newt that we need to worry about.[c10184100.r0.cf2.rackcdn.com image 420x236][www.nps.gov image 285x218]They are very important in that they are very sensitive indicators of water quality. They are what is known as an indicator species. They require near pristine conditions. So if hellbender populations begin to decline in an area, it is time to figure out what is going on and correct it before the watershed becomes polluted.
FlashHarry: yes, but what do the derpetologists say?
Canton: Nice to see a non-charismatic species getting position attention for a change. Well, okay, mostly positive. Keeping my expectations reasonable here./Didn't Cracked do a piece on snot otters? I think Soren Bowie wrote it...

I think Soren Bowie wrote it...What really gripes me is Zoos trying to breed white tigers, it is creating a breed that could never survive in the wild. They need to blend into the environment to survive.Ack. That would be positive attention, not position attention. Although perhaps positions are involved. I don't want to think about it.And yeah, white tigers shouldn't even be a thing. That's a color mutation that doesn't last in nature, not a separate species that needs saving. But I guess a non-deformed white tiger is the charismatic opposite of a hellbender. Sad, really.
Nappy Imus: 2: Vote for the best candidate this year: Nobody.
blatz514: I went on a hellbender this weekend. Oy.
