Underwater Rock

Posted on Oct 8, 2015

While surveying for Eastern Hellbenders, we sometimes utilize technology to get a better view of potential crevices that might be used as an entrance point for the salamander to get under a rock. Using a waterproof camera, I snapped this shot to see how far back the opening went and if any hellbender faces were poking out of the darkness. Although it didn’t seem to be a long enough crevice for a hellbender to use, it still turned out to be an interesting view!
