Biggish animal story: the Eastern hellbender

Taking a short break from the Mueller Report, here’s a pretty big animal story from 538 Significant Digits:

191 to 6

Pennsylvania, at long last, has an official state amphibian. It is the … drum roll … Eastern hellbender, a two-foot long salamander, aka the snot otter, aka the lasagna lizard aka the mud devil. The state’s House voted in a landslide, 191-6, to honor the snot otter. [Associated Press]

Okay, now back to see whether the snot otter appears in the Mueller Report.
