What extinct creature would you like to bring back?


Somewhat based on naomasa's post, I was thinking about animals that might be cool to see again. IF we were able to bring them back, what animal would you want to see? You can only choose ONE

My pick would definitely be the Aurochs, the giant bovine species that could reach upwards of 7ft at the shoulder. This Indian breed called the Gaur is speculated to be the closest related Breed and look at it...

Interestingly, the Nazis were also interested in the Aurochs and was trying to somehow clone or reproduce the extinct creatures.

Hitler wanted to bring back prehistoric wild Auroch cows from the dead | Mail Online

It will be print-on-demand only by then, I do believe.

I won't know, that's for certain.
