There are creatures, plants, and other organisms that are used to gauge a healthy ecosystem and the Hellbender salamander's need for clean streams is a good example of this even if you never know they are there.

I will certainly be a lot more mindful while wading the streams of Western North Carolina and hope to come across one of these dragons peeping out from underneath a rock.

The Freshwaters Illustrated website is a great resource to spend some time looking around on too.
