Rare Texas blind salamanders are ‘doing well’ after hatching at zoo for first time

Good News Notes:

“Three Texas blind salamanders have hatched at San Antonio Zoo, marking the first time ever that the zoo has been able to breed the endangered species.

The San Marcos pool of the Edwards Aquifer is the only place where Texas blind salamanders live in the wild.

They are blind amphibians that rely on a constant supply of clean water from the Edwards Aquifer, and are adapted to life below ground.”
