Extinct Animals From The 60s
Transcript of Extinct Animals From The 60s
in the 60s. I'll get to that in a few seconds, but first I'm going to tell you what this word means.
All these words you see have a connection to the word extinct.
Let's get right into it.
Extinct Animals From The 60s
I'm sure all of you know what racoons are.
How to Help
Just like the huge lists of extinct species, there's also a huge list of endangered species. So these animals still need your help.
Location 2: Mexico
By the way, I chose this topic because animals are awesome and I think they deserve to live just like how we do.
But to be clear, the word extinct pretty much means in this case that a species has died out, been destroyed or has disappeared completely.
3 reasons why animals go extinct:
1. Illegal Hunting
2. Habitat Loss
Name: Javan Rhinoceros
Location: Indonesia and Vietnam
Number remaining: fewer than 50
The main reason and a noticeable one is for its horns, which is prized by poachers, and its forests are prized by developers. Both could spell doom for the species.
Here are some examples of current endangered species of animals near extinction or that have become extinct. (went endangered or extinct in the 21st century)
Name: Giant Panda
Location: China, Burma, Vietnam
Number remaining: fewer than 2000
The giant panda is actually legally protected but is endangered because of habitat loss. It's called the "giant" panda so you can't get it mixed with the red panda.
Name: Cross River Gorilla
Location: Nigeria and Cameroon
Number remaining: fewer than 300
Thought to be extinct in the 1980s, the species is holding on, however it is now the world's rarest great ape. Being hunted for bush-meat, barely scraping to stay alive.
One more animal before going to animals that died in the 60s.
Name: Sumatran Tiger
Location: Sumatra, in Indonesia
Number remaining: fewer than 400
Personally one of my favorite animals, tigers!
Sadly hunted for its amazing fur noticeable with big, black stripes.
I guess they are dangerous, but
come on, how could you hunt these animals.
The mexican bear lived in grasslands and mountainous pine forests near the northern areas of Mexico.
Location 3: Guam
This is the Barbados raccoon. It is one of four subspecies of the common raccoon. The only one that is extinct.
The next picture contains graphic gore and is emotionally distressing. I won't have it zoomed in. But look away if you're the squirmish type.
List of extinct species:
The main cause for its extinction was because habitat destruction due to tourism.
Was classified extinct in 1996 by the IUCN, and was last spotted in 1964.
INTERNATIONAL UNION FOR CONSERVATION OF NATURE
HISTORY OF LIFETIME
Way back in the 1900s, farmers considered this bear as a pest because the bears would hunt for their cattle time by time. So the bears were trapped, shot, poisoned and became rare in the 1930s, but later on in the 60s, only 30 or less were still out in the wild. Sadly by 1964, they just seemed to have disappeared.
Its diet contained plants, fruits and insects. Occasionally it fed on small mammals.
And when it came to the cubs, the female mothers produced one to three every three years or so.
Guam Flying Fox
The Guam flying fox is a somewhat small megabat. (does not use echolocation but instead its eyes and nose)
Reasons For Its Extinction:
1. Was hunted for food when there was a generous amount
2. Guam became infested with the brown tree snake, the predator of the flying fox
