How do axolotls induce metamorphosis?

Asked by Ulises Charles

However, it is possible to induce metamorphosis in axolotls by simply adding thyroid hormone to the rearing water. If thyroid hormone is provided at an appropriate concentration and at a time during development that related tiger salamanders normally transform, healthy and robust terrestrial axolotls can be generated.
