Virgin chub gila seminuda


The virgin chub is an extremely rare western endemic minnow. This is another Colorado River species that has not fared well since the Grand Canyon was callously destroyed with pointless and environmentally destructive dams. It can still be found in certain tributaries, however, and is still successfully reproducing in some areas, which is more than can be said for most of the other Colorado River endemic fishes.
