Default Allegany Hellbender looks like pure meaness and poison..

Looks like a killer, but is harmless.

The species is on the endangered list, partly because some people kill them on sight. Some restocking..and educating is going on in Allegany State Park.

Hellbenders sure are ugly, but there's no reason to kill them.
If folks killed all ugly things, I'd have been dead long ago.

DEMOCRATS/ABORTIONISTS SHOULD TAKE HEED OF THE FACT THAT BABIES ARE GOD'S MOST PRECIOUS.

When I was a kid we used to catch lot's of Mud puppies out of the Cedar River in Iowa. Grandpa prohibited us from killing them. We put a few in his stock tanks to keep them clean and let the rest go. They would get pretty big in the stock tank.
