5 Giant Animals that Should Stay Extinct

There are a number of animals that we want to bring back from extinction, but a few of them are just too scary to be roaming the earth today.

Meganeura - Massive Dragonfly
Meganeura - Massive Dragonfly
Remember running around the garden as a child chasing around little insects like dragonflies? Well the meganeura is something that you want run away from.  This creature is a giant dragonfly-like insect that had a wingspan reaching a feet and a half. They were one of the largest predatory insects on earth. These insects mostly prayed on other insects and small amphibians. Some scientists say that these giant dragonflies wouldn’t survive in today’s atmosphere, so don’t expect to see these giant buzzers flying around in your backyard.

Jaekelopterus Rhenaniae - Giant Sea Scorpion

Jaekelopterus Rhenaniae - Giant Sea Scorpion
Scorpions are already scary enough with their poisonous stingers, but these ones could grow big enough to surpass the average human’s height. These giant monsters live in streams and lakes and will eat anything from fish to shellfish. Though they’re called sea scorpions, they actually look more like a giant lobster, a giant lobster with claws the size of a man’s head.

Argentavis Magnificens - Giant Bird
Argentavis Magnificens
Condors are one of the biggest flying birds today, but they look like tiny garden song birds next to the Argentavis Magnificens. They also weigh a staggering 240 pounds with wings that are around 19 to 26 feet across. Imagine seeing a bird flying around in that’s just about the size of a Lear Jet. Along with wingspans the size of a small truck, they prey on almost anything on land, swooping down on animals the size of cows and lifting them up in the air.

Arctodus Simus – Giant Bear

Arctodus Simus
This giant prehistoric bear stood at 12 feet tall on their hind legs and weighted a ton. They’re the perfect combination of strength and power. Unlike modern bears who feed on berries and fish, these animals preferred to prey on bigger game. Experts say that these giant bears became extinct because they were hunted by the first men on earth. Another reason was because their prey and food supply started to deplete because early man started to consume them as well.

Josephoartigasia Monesi – Giant Rat
 Josephoartigasia Monesi
The Josephoartigasia Monesi was the biggest rodent that was ever discovered. It resembled a capybara, only that it’s as big as a hippopotamus. They can reach five feet in height and 10 feet long, weighing in a ton. Although these rodents were vegetarian, they had giant incisors that we’re sharp enough to crack any bone. Food became scares so these giant rodents slowly died out.

4 Heart-Warming Unusual Interspecies Friendships

We often see animals hunt each other in documentaries or nature shows, but a few of documented cases actually show a much softer side to wild animals, especially when a wild animal known to be a top predator develops an uncommon friendship towards an animal that they’d usually consider prey.

Here are of the most uncommon animal friendship that was documented.

Bella the Labrador and Bubbles the African Elephant

Bubbles might be ten times bigger than Bella, but these two have become an inseparable pair. Bubbles was flown to a reserve in the United Sates after being rescued from poachers. Bella was owned by one of the contractors who worked for the reserve. They like spending time together especially near the water, swimming and playing around.

Wilma the Ostrich and Bea the Giraffe

Besides their long necks, these two animals have absolutely nothing alike. Wilma and Bea have become good friends while staying at the Busch Gardens, a park that offers animal encounters with a huge enclosure that’s around 65 acres wide. Although they have all the space to run around alone or with others that are the same species as they are, they willingly spend time with each other.

Sniffer the Wild Fox and Tinni the Dog
Sniffer the Wild Fox and Tinni the Dog
Think of the movie the fox and the hound, but replace the hound with a dog that looks like a German Shepherd. Torgeir Berge, a photographer and Tinni’s owner, first met Sniffer when they were out of a walk in the woods. Since then, the two became best friends. Berge took photos of the unusual pair and complied a book called The Fox and the Dog which he hopes can help ban the fox-fur trade.

Bonedigger the Lion and Milo the Dog

Imagine a tiny dachshund taking care of a lion cub. This is how Milo and Bonedigger’s friendship started. The G.W. Exotic Animal Park found in Wynnewood, Oklahoma has been taking care of Bonedigger, a crippled lion that has a metabolic bone illness, since he was a cub. Milo has also been protecting the lion since then. Years later, Bonedigger is now a 500 pound, fully grown lion and Milo still stays by his side along with two other dachshunds, Angel and Bullet.

Shere Khan the Tiger, Leo the Lion and Baloo the Bear

The touching story behind these three animals starts with a rescue and even a surgery. These three were rescued from an abusive drug dealer who kept them as pets. Baloo even had to go through a surgery to take out a harness which grew into his skin, causing deformities. Because of the traumatic experience, Shere Khan, Leo and Baloo became inseparable. They’re now taken care of by the Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary.
