I miss the thylacines, bro...
I saw one in my back yard just last week
>>3645195Pics or GTFO
I could have sworn I saw this nigga but I guess not
Feels like shit, just want my ground sloths and glyptodonts back...
>>3645191yeah,it's pretty sad having species going 404 cause of humans. But how does its absence affect you? why even bother?
>>3645267>Carolina parakeets were probably poisonous—American naturalist and painter John J. Audubon noted that cats apparently died from eating themDamn, what a based bird
Any human sub specie that went extinct, for obvious reasons.....
>>3645191All of them
>>3645648I saw this lady yesterday at walmart
>>3645630You fucking nigger, don't make me cry.
>>3645644So why did they go extinct?
>>3645267I'm still mad they're gone.
>>3645648>the good guys lost
>>3645671Did you smash?
>>3645630>>3645856>>3645982feeling like shit rn i just want him back
>>3645191Its ok our custodian frens have every species saved and cataloged from all around the universe ayy lmao
>>3645889Habitat destruction and hunting for their feathers
>>3645643Three Gorges Dam will break one day and the river dolphin and paddlefish will have justice
The Stephen Island WrenIt was driven extinct by a single cat, fuck catfags they deserve to burn
>>3646440even then their ecosystem will never be the same
>>3645191imagine if there were still children eating eagles in New Zealand
>>3646695Yes, run you little shit [spoiler]>:)[/spoiler]
>>3646695Kill kids for the eagle bros.
No one posted a Dire Wolf?What a , dire, mistake.
>>3647728Dire Wolves not really being wolves this whole time was a hell of a plot twist.
>>3645849this but unironicallydunon why they always depict them with shitty jaws though
>>3648593what do you mean they're not wolves? they're pack hunting canines related to wolves aren't they?
>>3648947Its recently been discovered they're not closely related to wolves but canines that evolved to look like wolves through convergent evolution.
>>3646440>>3646524Their ecosystem will be filled with the floating bodies of 200M chinks. I know they don't have the cognitive capacity but I do like to see the moment when the tables have turned and they get eaten instead of mindlessly murdering and eating every animal they can lay their hands on.
>>3648953>convergent evolution.not a real thing. just pure historical revisionism.
>>3649118>not a real thing source: my ass
>>3645514it looks creepy
>>3645191Shame there is almost no info of pic related. There's only one stuffed specimen found in a basement.Is it even remotely possible they're still alive, they seemed very elusive.
>>3648953>not closely related to wolves yes>but canines that evolved to look like wolves through convergent evolution.no, that whole group looks like wolves. the common ancestor looked like a wolf
>>3649118In what way is it revisionism? The concept of convergent evolution makes perfect sense to me so I'm not sure what you mean
>>3645191they arent extinct. pic related.much like the beaver who switched from a diurnal to crepuscular lifestyle to avoid humans. the thylacine did the same. it avoids humans by living between the timeframes humans don't bother to search.the thylacine is alive and well.
>>3649667I want to believe, but considering it's a large carnivore, it seems unlikely that we STILL haven't been able to find factual proof that it's still around, I mean, not even skulls/ corpses of dead specimens? Maybe Aussies are incompetent and there is no longer much research put into finding them, but if it was still around, how can the largest carnivorous marsupial be so hard to find?Granted, Australia and Tasmania are really big, it makes you wonder if maybe a population has managed to survive undiscovered/adapted to avoid humans like you said, but it doesn't seem feasible considering it has to compete for resources with dingoes, foxes, feral dogs, and any other introduced carnivore, not to mention humans themselves.Again, I want to believe they're still out there, but it seems unlikely, but never give up hope!
>>3649678ok several things to push the belief>it isnt a large carnivore. it is a medium carnivore at best. weighing less than 100 lbs. It's relative small size will make it hard for people to find it.>skeletal remains will disappear frequently. they did a study when trying to prove bigfoot through animal remains. they used a deer corpse, in less than a week, the deer corpse was completely destroyed by nature, bones and all.> There have been few studies in southern Tasmania, it is a place that is vast and hard to navigate. the few people that live there, swear by their soul they have seen thylacine in the dense bush
If they weren't extinct you wouldn't give a shit about them
>>3649836Several of them are pretty cool, would make good "classic animals" if they still existed.
>>3646481___ ____ ____
>>3649836What a stupid argument, there are lots of cool animals alive right now that people give a shit about.
>>3649836>half zebra half tigerNo, I'd still give a few shits about them.
>>3649434Major uncanny valley with its ridiculously sized beak and tiny eyes.
>>3649667>>3649678>>3649696The worst case scenario is that they did survive in extremely limited numbers for a few decades after their "official" extinction date, only to be gradually picked off by crocodiles or dingos.
>>3646481Is that a motherfucking Koolasuchus?>>3649667>>3649696I really fucking hope they still exist. They're cool and one day I hope people will breed them into Marsupial pugs to mog people on /an/.I really wish the land crocodiles were still around. They're Archosaurs with four chambered hearts and they just seem so fucking cool.
>>3645191Just want muh giant scorpions
>>3646480Based cat, imagine being solely responsible for an extinction event brought about by your grit and hard work. Maximum chad energy.
>>3651761snibbety snabbity stingity :DDD
>>3649667If thylacines were still around, where are the remains done by the fire last year?
