A rare species of salamander called a "hellbender" is shown swimming in a tank at the Bronx Zoo in New York, February 4, 2011. The zoo will raise 41 juvenile hellbenders to maturity and release them back into the wild in order to help preserve the species. Hellbenders are native to New York State where they are listed as a species of special concern. They are threatened by pollution and habitat destruction.   REUTERS/Julie Larsen Maher - Wildlife Conservation Society
