North Carolina Salamander and Catfish Receive Federal Designation
Two types of animals in North Carolina have been added to the endangered species list. The Carolina MadTom Catfish and the Neuse River Waterdog Salamander. What this means is the federal government can now cancel any development, including putting up a shed in your backyard or building a bridge over a creek, if anyone finds one of these creatures on your property. The MadTom Catfish is now an endangered species. The Waterdog Salamander is classified as a threatened species.
