More recently extinct animals.
I've had some fun browsing DA for extinct animals such as the thylacine. Many animals have gone extinct. Some cases are more notable and well known then others. Somehow I find it more sad when a unique type of animal goes extinct rather then a certain species or sub species. Sure it's sad that a certain species of tiger or lion went extinct, but there are still other lions and tigers in existence. In the case of the thylacine, these were a unique species and now there are no more of them in existence.
The worst part of it is the last thylacine died of neglectful treatment in a zoo. Neglecting animals in a zoo setting is always sad. I suppose it's the thought and mentality of it, since when there was only one left, the species was bound to go extinct. At least last passenger pigeon was treated well and attempts were made to breed her.
I keep hoping they can be cloned and brought back, but the news on that issue, despite having preserved thylacines does not seem promisi
