Such pattern, also observed in porpoises, suggests a condition not strictly linked to paedomorphic species, as the skull morphology of P blainvillei (specially the rostrum) exhibits strong modifications during its growth.
In North Dakota, populations are completely metamorphic when ponds are ephemeral (and can reach high temperatures), completely paedomorphic in deep cattle ponds that always have water and do not freeze completely (and are always cool), and are mixed metamorphic/paedomorphic in larger shallow lakes that dry periodically (e.
