Ozark hellbenders became mothers at the St. Louis Zoo in November of 2011 for the first time in captivity.

Sixty-three hellbender larvae hatched out, starting on Nov. 15. It will take up to two years for them to morph into salamander form, and another five to eight years to reach sexual maturity.

Bizarre Arkansas season 2 is officially a thing. At 14:16 is the first part of my interview with Mark Spitzer, Associate Professor of Creative Writing at UCA and author of Glurk! A Hellbender Odyssey and Crypto-Arkansas (among many others). It was a fascinating conversation, and I can’t wait for you to hear the rest in future episodes of Radio CALS.
