Animals that we will not see

With the exception of mammoths and dinosaurs on the planet there were a large number of animals, which now can not be found in any reserve. About some of the animal population of the Earth has forgotten, but it is the fault of the people most of them are gone.
Dodo






Probably one of the most famous extinct ptits.Bezmyatezhno suschestvovashaya, flightless bird Columbiformes squad lost the instinct for survival due to the lack of predators eating them on the islands of its habitat. Dodo lived on the islands of Mauritius, Rodrigues, Reunion.

The reason for the disappearance of the dodo was the development of the islands by Europeans. Soon after the Portuguese and the Dutch began to explore and study the islands, they launched a countdown to the species. The fact that the sailors from the ships delivered: dogs, cats and binding of passengers - rats. All these bellies "landed" on the island began to destroy helpless nests Dodo (so called birds such sailors, probably from the port. Doudo - stupid, crazy) Just because of the nutritional value of the dodo were killed for meat, and kill the dodo was quite without Labor - the sailors just approached them and killed them with sticks and stones, and the poor bird is almost no resistance.

Most last dodo died in 1761. At this time, in Oxford are experiments on DNA recovery of this bird.

Quagga »& gt;
The fate of this animal has developed a bit happier than the dodo. Naturally quagga died many years ago, more precisely in 1883, at the zoo. It existed in the vast equine Yu Africa and was domesticated by man for the prevention of the attack on a flock of chickens predators while quagga shouted "Kuah," for which he was called. However, the project to revive the quagga, launched in 1983, was a success. January 20. 2005 light originated quagga foal - Henry. Experts in the future will be able to revive the kind of Quagga and c / o while they are once again frolic in the open spaces of Africa.

Moa




Moa or Elephant Bird which reached gigantic proportions lived in New Zealand. These birds resembling ostriches reaches a length of 3.5 meters and weighing about 350 kg. We walked the earth New Zealand to 1500, while the natives did not destroy them completely. But according to some reports of birds seen more as a result of the 19th century. Unfortunately data on the population to recover this species. However, experts have found that the closest relative of the moa is a bird Tinamou.

Thylacine




This kind of animal is very mysterious fate. According to reliable information the last Thylacine died at a private zoo in 1936, although the existence of the Thylacine facts were and will be. The very same kind of marsupial wolf lived and developed in Tasmania, which was not his worst nedruga- dingo. There's an animal lived quietly until 1863, when uncontrolled shooting led to the death of most populations of this species, and the dog plague dogs introduced by another type entirely by 1930 has led to a partial extinction of the marsupial wolf. Fortunately for today specialists are working gene DNA of wolf and it may be cloned. Also, there is evidence that a very small fraction of species survived in the dense forests of Tasmania, but unfortunately take a picture or to catch it has not yet happened.

Falklands fox




Unlike all previous types that extinct forever. This animal lived in the Falkland Islands, and was the only native, terrestrial mammals such islands. Fox had a very beautiful fur (for which he was uncontrollably destroyed) and knew how to bark like a dog. The main reason for the extinction of the fox began to Scottish settlers kill that predator as a threat to flocks of sheep. To date, no clue how to restore the species. The Falklands are no forests where Mogdy fox hide, because we will never see it.

Steller's sea cow



A total of 27 years for a person to unichozheniya whole species. Marine mammals of the order Sirenia. Length up to 10 m, weighing up to 4 tons. Habitat - Commander Islands (although there is information and data off the coast of Kamchatka and Northern Kuriles). This sedentary toothless dark brown animal length generally 6-8 m with a forked tail lived in shallow bays, almost did not know how to dive, fed vodoroslyami.Hotya people because fat and lean cows defenseless, heartlessly kill her. Only 27 years old man was required to destroy the entire species ... But to the joy of hope cloning, there are - in one of the laboratories kept a piece zaspirtovanoy cow leather, from which it is possible to isolate DNA for cloning But today there is evidence of the appearance of the cow off the coast of Kamchatka and the Kuril Islands. Of course, sad to read about the sad fate of these animals, particularly unfortunate that the fault of the disappearance of a person. However, that was it, you need to look forward, not looking back. Today in the age of technology, we can clone many species of extinct animals to return them to life.
