Get Ready to See One of the World's Biggest Salamanders

The Hellbender is a giant salamander, up to 29 inches long, but these creatures aren't easy to find.

They tend to spend daylight hours under rocks, and on top of that, their numbers—and their habitats—have severely dwindled.

In the above video from Brave Wilderness, Coyote Peterson and herpetologist Tim Brust travel to a secret location on a quest to encounter the super amphibian. Their mission is to collect field data and biometrics to help conservation efforts for the Hellbender, listed as near threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Rainforests  are the most diverse places on earth and contain thousands of different species. However, we still know so little about them and the treasures that they contain. No one has been able to say how many plant species that there in the Amazon rainforest, until now. An international team of researchers from Brazil, the U.K., Columbia, and Spain have painstakingly compiled a list of 14,003 plant species that are growing in the Amazon rainforest.

Don’t be mistaken, this number is not the total number of plant species in the Amazon, only the number that have been formally identified. There are still troves of species in the Amazon waiting to be discovered. Identifying all the ones that we know is a start. And certainly, this was no easy task, as this information can be scattered across many different sources, and in different languages.

“Subsidizing fossil fuel companies in the face of rapid climate change is like spraying jet fuel on a burning home. To put out the fire, we must first stop making the problem worse,” Doukas continued. “Ignoring the problem just because fossil fuel industry mascots like Trump demand it is like agreeing to take the warning labels off of cigarettes because they offend Joe Camel. Our leaders must act now to stop burning our tax dollars and stop trashing the climate.”
