GETTING A CLOSER LOOK: USFWS conducts research on Texas Blind Salamander and others

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) San Marcos Aquatic Resources Center team caught a close look at some Texas blind salamanders during a sampling trip at Purgatory Creek Natural Area in San Marcos on Nov. 10. USFWS biologists are conducting research on ten species that live in the Edwards Aquifer, including the Texas Blind Salamander.
