The Woolly Mammoth - adapted to cold temperatures and open tundra.
The Pyrenean Ibex
The Caribbean monk seal, or Sea Wolf
The Carolina Parakeet
The Dodo - meat bird
The Kaua’i ‘O’o Moho
The Cuban Macaw
The Passenger Pigeon or Wild Pigeon
The Elephant Bird - meat bird
The Moa - meat bird
The Labrador Duck
My wish list:
The Irish Elk - preferred relatively temperate conditions and semi-woodland habitats.
Stood 7 feet at the shoulder. Adult males had massive antlers that spanned 12 feet and weighed up to 88 pounds.
The Giant Beaver
The Woolly Rhino
The Giant Sloth
The Cave Bear
There’s some evidence that the Thylacine isn’t extinct.
And the Giant Beaver, well...
Ivory-billed woodpecker and Steller’s sea cow, for me.
And mammoth too.
No short-faced bears. No way.
I second the giant sloth.
I thought a quagga was a zebra-like thing, not a bird?
More cool ones: Moa, Haast’s eagle, megalania.
People do realize why this bird was hunted in the first place, right?
Gigantopithecus, too. Except he’s still around under different names; Bigfoot, Sasquatch, etc.
BTW - I live in an Agenda 21 "large predator" corridor. Do you want to relocate me so some on your list - the Smilodon, formerly local - won't run into me toting a .505 Gibbs?
