      Reminder:
      >It is proposed that Miracinonyx is thought to be an instance of parallel evolution with the cheetah of the Acinonyx genus, but recent studies suggest that it was not specialized in chasing like the cheetah was since it retained retractable claws that would have crippled its ability to run fast. Instead, it was more closely related to the cougar, and at least M. trumani might have employed a hunting behavior that has no modern analogues, suggesting that it running fast like the cheetah is a common misconception. Additionally, the injuries that led to the death of a sub-adult Miracinonyx according to a 2022 research article by John-Paul Michael Hodnett et al suggest that Miracinonyx felids regularly engaged in fighting similar to the extant puma and most other cats and unlike the cheetah, where instances of cheetah individuals fighting each other are rare, further bringing doubts of convergence.

    We lost nothing when we lost the passenger pigeon. Every town in America has a population of pigeons living in it, whatever nich passenger pigeons held has been filled.
    >but there arent as many rock pigeons as there were passenger pigeons!!!
    thank christ too. can you imagine a flock of rock pigeons blotting out the sun? how much literal shit would rain from the sky? we're better off without them.

      Unless you're intentionally going for some kind of minimalism challenge, this isn't a useful way to look at things. By that same logic we might as well just get rid of 90% of all animals in the world since their niche can be filled by other things. Heck, get rid of 90% of humans too since history shows that only a tiny handful ever do anything important and the rest just take up space.

      This is humanity's fault though, we killed their predators and that's why its population exploded. It's not like they were always like this, shitting forests to death.

    Don't forget the passenger pigeon too. There literally was tons of them yet we still managed to make them extinct because we just went "lol, there's so many, there's no way we'll run out".

    How does one ensure the long term survival of a de-extinct species? Or are all of these fated to have a half dozen individuals living in zoos and being cloned over and over for our entertainment?

        I think this is the closest anyone's got yet. The egg was frozen from a live individual prior to extinction and the embryos were implanted into a different subspecies of the same species that's still extant
        so, not really there yet no

      The plan would probably be to clone multiple genetically unique versions and once a breeding population on a ranch is established, reintroducing their off spring to gain a foot hold in the introduced region.

      There was a ferret that was cloned and used to supplement the gene pool of a dwindling species, but to my knowledge there hasn't been a from extinction rebirth yet.
      Some groups are working on it though.

        I can see why those practices are considered unethical... Wonder if they just got unlucky or they were doomed to fail.

        If you could bring back an extinct animal, which is it? The dodo seems cool to me

        In fact, the stellar's sea cow went extinct about 60 years AFTER the dodo went extinct.

    The Seller's sea cow was like if we found mammoths in the modern era and still hunted them into extinction, even worse given how accounts describe them as having strong bonds with each other.
    >Steller described the sea cow as being highly social (gregarious). It lived in small family groups and helped injured members, and was also apparently monogamous. Steller's sea cow may have exhibited parental care, and the young were kept at the front of the herd for protection against predators. Steller reported that as a female was being captured, a group of other sea cows attacked the hunting boat by ramming and rocking it, and after the hunt, her mate followed the boat to shore, even after the captured animal had died.

    Passenger pigeon. It's extinction was a wild ride. Population went up to apocalyptic levels due to human activity and then people created such a birdcide, that they couldn't stop it when they realized it's going too far.

    But if I could choose something outside from this list, I would definitely pick Kauaʻi ʻōʻō bird. You can listen to a song of one of the last members, or maybe literally the last one on YouTube. One of the saddest shit ever.

        WW1 was a war between different imperialistic empires, the only positive of it was that it made the material conditions in Russia conducive to an overthrow of the monarchy, which most likely would have happened regardless of which side won.

            the USA today and back then has a far higher prison population than the USSR ever had, the USSR also put an end to the glorified slavery of the former serfs and took the country from a backwater shithole to a geopolitical rival against the genocidal colonial empires of the west, this was with expansive welfare, gender equality, scientific innovation, and guaranteed housing and food I should mention.
