El Pandeño hotspring in Julimes, Chihuahua, Mexico

El Pandeño officially known as "San José de Pandos" hotspring is home to the endemic Julimes pupfish (Cyprinodon julimes) considered to be the freshwater teleost that lives at the highest temperatures on the planet. This spring is about 700 m2 in size and located in the Rio Conchos Basin, Chihuahua, Mexico. It is among several springs impacted by increasing pumping that depletes the local groundwater supply. The Spring and its aquatic wildlife are under the custody of local NGO Amigos del Pandeño, A.C.[1]
