No Mexico water monster (axolotl) can be found. Are they gone?

A new report suggests that the unique and 'ugly' creature axolotl is extinct. The so called Mexican water monster or walking fish lived in lakes in Mexico City. A team from Mexico's National Autonomous University was not able to find an axolotl in their latest three month long search mission.

According to a report on the Telegraph there once lived millions in the Xochimilco and Chalco lakes. Good thing that there are still axolotl held in labs. The university will launch another search mission soon to see if there really is no axolotl left in the wild. The reason of the disappearance of the Mexican water monster is likely pollution.

You can watch below a video showing a axolotl in an aquarium. They kind of have a nice smile.
