The Pyrenean Ibex has been extinct since January 2000 but In January 2009, the Pyrenean Ibex was the first species to ever be brought back into existence via cloning, only to go extinct again just seven minutes after being born. Its death was due to lung failure. The last natural Pyrenean Ibex, a female named Celia, was found dead on January 6, 2000, apparently killed by a falling tree. Although her cause of its death is known, the reason for the extinction of the Ibex as a whole is a mystery. Celia: The last one Standing! In what part of the world did Pyrenean Ibex’s live?
