Extinct Axolotl !?

I just read an article a few days ago about this, I can't remember exact details but they actually found some in the wild. The numbers were low but still there.

Here's the article:

I used to have one years ago. It grew to about 1.5'. They are interesting creatures. Used to feed anything from ground beef to worms.

I did hope at first if maybe what ever it was that stunted there metamorphosis had some how reversed?

I believe its a thyroid issue ? Maybe some natural iodine source ? But then I guess they would have looked to see if the salamander things they morph into had suddenly started developing in the area .

Sad to think of anything wiped out of an ecosystem .
