STELLAR'S SEA COW
Someone decided to build a lighthouse on the island, and the whole species was wiped out in a short period by the lighthouse keeper's cat. That seemed pretty unfortunate.
because of the cool name
mammoths and dwarf elephants
they were mentioned in the book I got for my birthday, and the stuff written about them made me feel quite sad.
the possible recent sightings are cool, though probably false
The Wikipedia page must have thought there was a run on them or something (with two hits).
...altho I've not given up hope of them still being out there. Yet.
These bad ass things die out and chihuahuas and that stay around? Absolutely no justice.
moas and elephant birds
