NC Wildlife Commission Debunks Hellbender Bounty Rumor. It doesn’t exist. In fact, this rare species of salamander is on a protected list. Classified as a ‘species of special concern’. It’s a misdemeanor to harass, remove, injure or kill. If you see one of these in our cold, freshwater, mountain streams, enjoy watching it. In fact, let the Wildlife Commission know where you spotted it. GPS coordinates are requested, if possible.



This is an amazing salamander. It’s one of the biggest salamander species, if not the biggest. For photographs and more, go to:
