Ancient Creatures That We Are Glad They Are Extinct

Haast’s Eagle
This giant endemic eagle was the largest predator among New Zealand’s prehistoric fauna. It is the largest, heaviest eagle species yet described, weighing up to 17.8 kg and had a wingspan up to 3 metres. Near-complete skeleton finds show that it had the body and wings of a giant eagle, legs and bill larger and stronger than the largest living vulture species, and feet and claws as big as a modern day tiger’s.


These characteristics made it the top predator in prehistoric South Island terrestrial ecosystems. Like the iconic moa, Haast’s eagle evolved through - and survived - multiple glacial periods, when larger body size would have increased survival chances. The species was named after Julius von Haast, first director of Canterbury Museum.

Meganeura : The largest insect ever existed was a giant dragonfly

Meganeura is a genus of extinct insects from the Carboniferous period (approximately 300 million years ago), which resembled and are related to the present-day dragonflies. Its wingspans from 65 cm (25.6 in) to more than 70 cm (28 in),

M.Monyi is one of the largest known species of flying insects. Meganeura was predatory and their diet consisted mainly of other insects.



The Spanish ate the dodo to extinction in Madagascar


This species used to exist during the vapour canopy antediluvian period, during the age of giants.

The Spanish and their love of eating birds, and yet are still fighting bulls like some community here in Kenya, one of the Kenyan Matador’s was recently killed. @Abba @uwesmake @Panyaste
