Date: Jan.8.14 Time: 9:30 pm Weather Conditions: -14 C (-18 windchill). Mostly Clear Skies. Habitat Type: Creek. Possible Threats : A road/bridge runs over the creek area so runoff and contaminants could degrade the water. Observations: Approximately 104 Necturus maculosus were seen in the middle of the creek area. Most of the water was frozen, except in the middle portion just adjacent to the current. Here the animals could be seen clearly on the bottom. Both sub-adult and adult animals.
