Salamanders and snow squalls

Hi all,
Here’s some up to the minute news that will interest a number of you.

In response to a May 2015 petition from SAVE THE FROGS! and the Center for Biological Diversity, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has implemented a nationwide rule restricting the importation and interstate transportation of 201 salamanders species, effective today (January 28, 2016). The restriction is designed to prevent introduction of the deadly fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans into the United States.
Learn all about the salamander ban right here.

And here are a couple of pics of the snow squalls that when through here yesterday afternoon. Thanks Karen R.
