Mexico's Weird, Gross Fish Monster Might Be Extinct!!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueEndangeredFishCrazzzzy

Super weird gross fish lizard thing might be extinct!!

Meet the Axolotl.

It’s like a water-breathing, thin skinned salamander that wears a crazy headdress.

Oh and it’s permanently smiling. Super cute, unique, gross and weird all at the same time.

This crazy lizard fish thing calls Lake Xochimilco near Mexico City its home.

In 1998, the Mexican Academy of Sciences found 6,000 axolotls per square kilometer. In 2008, they only found 100.

Now? They haven’t found a single one. They looked for three months.

They’re about to do another three-month survey to try and find if any of these guys are alive in the wild.

We really hope they find some because they’re named after the Xolotl, the Aztec god of death and fire and that’s just so super awesome.

Check out some axolotls doing their thang, aquarium style.
