Hellbenders are amphibians,
one of the Giant Salamanders, able to live in the water and on land.
They have gills and slimy skin. They have to have a moist habitat for
their gills to work and for their skin to stay moist. They hide from
the sun, in holes and under rocks, and go out at night, when the air
is moist. They can be found in the North Fork River.
