The eastern hellbender is the largest amphibian in Ohio and one of the largest salamanders in the world. It can reach 27 inches in length and weigh nearly 3 pounds.

The Akron Beacon Journal reported more than 20 hellbenders have been released by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources into two streams over the past three years.

John Navarro of ODNR’s Division of Wildlife said the plan is to release hundreds of hellbenders into multiple streams over 10 to 15 years.
