Endangered Alabama Waterdog

The Alabama waterdog is one of the most unseen creatures. They have become nearly extinct in the portions of Alabama where they call home due to pollution of the air and waters, as well as disturbance from mines, industry companies, and urban activities that go on in the surrounding areas. This also gives them only a select place to live since the pollution has covered most of their previous lands. This can become a problem during mating season, and trying to stay alive in the area as well. This amphibian is one of wonder, and it is amazing how far they have come since they first came about. This endangered waterdog came from a linage of salamanders dating back to ancient time, and diverged from all other amphibians of its kind around 190 million years ago when the Jurassic period was still going on. This species is secretive, and they are also nocturnal allowing them to hide under organic materials all day without being seen, and coming out at night to get food, water, and anything else they may need. They are not out in the warmer months of the year, and come out in the winter months. The heat makes them inactive, and rarely seen. There is only a little information on this species, and it is thought that their mating month is in December although the species has no repopulated to do the destruction of their habitat preventing them from doing so. If you have a chance to spot one of these creatures then you’re in luck since it is one of many freaky weird animals that are out there. Animals endangered in an area can lead to problems, and trying to keep a species alive is difficult to do when you do not know much about them. These waterdogs are just one of many.
