Over the past century many animals have become extinct. The last surviving animals in each species are called 'endling' and are sometimes named after the scientist or zoo manager who cares and protects them. Introduces famous animals that survived the endangered species.
Laps fringe tree frog, tupee
Toughie is also the last remaining frog and the first frog to be found among Lap's Fringe Legs tree frogs. According to the website Mentalfloss, researchers in Panama have found this frog during a rescue project to save wild amphibians from toxic fungi that spread in the jungle in 2005. The frog was also known as the lonely beast on earth. Soon the frog got a new house in the Atlanta Botanical Garden and got the name of a 2-year-old son of an amphibious care worker. Eventually, more frogs of this species were found, and in 2005, they officially designated the species of terpie as 'ecnomiohyla rabborum'. They have been collected in the wild or in humans and have all died within a few years. Tupi died at the age of twelve in 2016 and became a victim of frog yeast, a type of amphibian epidemic known to cause a rapid decline in amphibian populations.
Pint thomas elephant turtle, Lonsdale George
Named Lonesome George, the Pintatum Elephant Turtle was discovered in 1971 in the Galapagos Pintasum. According to the Mother Nature Network, the tortoise has been a symbol to promote the protection of the ecosystem of Pintas. Before this turtle was discovered, the turtles had been believed to have been extinct by whale-watching ships and fur traders visiting the island. Environmentalists and zoo managers have tried to mate George and the female turtles, but eventually they have not hatched eggs. In 2012, George was taken captive on Santa Cruz Island, California, where he was about 100 years old. Information about this turtle is on display at the Charles Darwin Institute in Galapagos.
Tasmania Tiger, Benjamin
The Tasmanian tiger, or wolf, has largely disappeared in the 20th century. As mentioned in the media Buzzfeed, Tasmania Tiger is an animal that looks like a dog but is extinct by hunting farmers who think they kill their sheep. These were the most carnivorous Jewish animals in modern times, and were extinct due to the absence of diseases and habitats. Tasmania Tiger Benjamin, who lived in Hobart Zoo in Australia from 1933 to 1936, was the last successor to them, and he died on a very cold night. At the moment, only rumors have been seen that they have seen them because there is no clear evidence that the Tasmanian Tiger still exists.
Heathchen is a variant of the grasshopper. The habitat was the northern part of the United States, but when other animals invaded here, he had to move elsewhere. Despite considerable efforts to protect him, the end of his misfortune was met by a misunderstanding of the New York State lawyer about a bill designed to protect Hisense, as well as a fire in a wildlife reserve or a car. According to Buzzfeed, the bill was titled "The Law on Heath and Other Animals," but the lawyer says he misread the phrase "heat hens." By 1929, only one Heathchen survived, named Booming Ben, and in 1932 it had lost its trail. Unfortunately, it is not recorded when this chicken died.
Travel Dove, Martha
Known as the Passenger Pigeon or the Ectopistes migratorius, this bird was once flooded in North America and was said to have sunked the sky for several hours during the sunrise. In 1878, thousands of travel pigeons began to populate the state of Michigan, and about fifty thousand doves died each day for five months. The number dropped from six billion to just a few in the 20th century, and hunting and deforestation had a major impact on the extinction. Martha, the last surviving travel pigeon, was born in the Cincinnati Zoo, lived for 29 years, and died in 1914. The remains of Martha can be seen at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC.
Many animals are now in danger of extinction. We must stop and protect animal hunting. If you do not take precautions now, the animals you see now may not be able to see them in a few years.
