Rarely seen, stable populations

A very rare and unique species. Isn't often seen, because it spends most of it's life under water in mud. When their underwater world drys up, they go into a cocoon state until it rains again. When handled, they make a clicking and hissing sound. They are similar in appearence to the mudpuppy, but they only have two front legs.
