Extinct Animals You’ve Probably Never Hear Of Before


Pyrenean Ibex

This wild goat was native to the highlands of Spain, where it was hunted heavily through the 19th and 20th Centuries. The few ibex that were left suffered from the other wild and domesticated animals in the area that competed for food. Interestingly, this was the first species ever to become unextinct, when a cloned female was born. Unfortunately she died several minutes after birth due to a lung defect.
