Distribution, Ecology, and Feeding Habits of Necturus lewisi (Brimley)

Record #:
The Neuse River Waterdog (Necturus lewisi) is a totally aquatic salamander endemic to the Neuse and Tar River drainages of North Carolina. A study conducted from 1978 through 1980 documented the waterdog’s distribution, ecology and feeding habits. A conservation status of Special Concern may be warranted due the animal’s need for larger streams with relatively clean, flowing water.
