Thursday we went looking for hellbenders and mudpuppies in French Creek. Some of us snorkled to lift the huge flat rocks that they hide under. You have to grab them behind the head and get them into the net or bucket. Then we get them into a pvc pipe to keep them straight while we measure them. Two hellbenders that we got were 50cm!!!
Later that night we went to Bousson and got TONS of smaller salamanders from flipping over smaller rocks and logs in the stream. We got a few frogs too.
