The earliest Prehistoric animals to live were jawless, spineless creatures that roamed the oceans about 540 million years ago. It wasn’t until the Devonian period, 400 million years ago, when the prehistoric creatures grew legs and left the ocean, these are the prehistoric ancestors to all vertebrate creatures on earth today. Once on land, the prehistoric creatures underwent a bunch of different adaptations for running, crawling, flying, and jumping; it was then when the rise of the dinosaurs took place, in the Triassic period about 230 million years ago.

Even though the dinosaurs ruled, many small, rodent-like mammals were alive and these small mammals, along with some birds, amphibians, and reptiles survived the mass extinction that wiped out the dinosaurs. Although 90% of the species that have lived on Earth throughout its existence are extinct, most of the creatures that survived this first mass extinction still exist today.

What causes animals to go extinct?

The factors that cause animals to go extinct are mainly the loss and degradation of habitat which is mainly due to deforestation. Other causes for animals going extinct are exploitation through hunting and overfishing, invasive species, and climate change. Plastic pollution and emerging diseases are also factors that play a role in the extinction of animals.

Can extinct animals be brought back?

Extinct animals have not successfully been brought back as of today. Scientists need to sequence its genome and then edit the DNA of a close living relative to match it. Afterwards, they would need to make embryos with the revised genome and have a surrogate mother carry them.

Which animals have gone extinct because of climate change?

Animals that have gone extinct because of climate change include the golden toad and the north Atlantic cod is threatened. The staghorn coral and orange-spotted filefish have also had their population numbers affected by the effects of climate change. It is up to humans to make the necessary changes and help endangered animal species.

Ancient Bison (Bison antiquus)
Comparison illustration of the size of a Ancient Bison to a typical person

The Ancient Bison (Bison antiquus) is an extinct Bison species and roamed North America roughly 10,000 years ago. The Ancient Bison was one of the and largest herbivores during that time and is a direct ancestor of the living American Buffalo. Ancient Bison's towered over their current ancestors with their larger distinctive hump and elongated horns. Ancient Bison have a thick dark brown fur coat with patchy light brown layers on their ridge. The Ancient Bison migrated from modern-day Siberia into Alaska then moved its way south roaming all North America.

Ancient Bisons had a shoulder height between 82.7”-89.4” (210-227 cm), body length from 113”-123” (286-312 cm), standing height of roughly 93.7”-100.8” (238-256 cm), and a body width of 46.9”-51.2” (119-130 cm). The horns of a Ancient Bison were between 36”-42” (91.4-106.7 cm). Ancient Bison weighed between 3300-3500 lb (1500-1590 kg) and had an estimated typical lifespan of 14-16 years.

The Ancient Bison (Bison antiquus) is an extinct Bison species and roamed North America roughly 10,000 years ago. The Ancient Bison was one of the and largest herbivores during that time and is a direct ancestor of the living American Buffalo. Ancient Bison's towered over their current ancestors.

Pachycephalosaurus (Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis)
Size comparison drawing of the Pachycephalosaurus compared to a person

The Pachycephalosaurus was a bipedal herbivorous dinosaur that belonged to the genus of pachycephalosaurids. It lived during the Late Cretaceous Period (Maastrichtian stage) in North America, and remains have been excavated in Montana, South Dakota, Wyoming, Alaska, and Alberta. The Greek translation of its name means ”thick-headed lizard” refers to the Pachycephalosaurus’s extremely thick skull roof. Other physical features were a thick neck, short forelimbs, long hindlimbs, a bulky body, and a heavy tail held rigid by ossified tendons. It has been commonly hypothesized that the Pachycephalosaurus used their skulls in combat, similar to the bighorn sheep or musk oxen’s use of their heads to transmit stress during ramming, but this has been disputed in recent years.

The Pachycephalosaurus had an overall length between 9.8’-16.4’ (3-5 m), standing height of 4.3’-7.2’ (1.3-2.2 m), and body width of 19.7”-33.5” (50-85 cm). The weight of the Pachycephalosaurus was between 815-992 lb (370-450 kg).

Thecodontosaurus (Thecodontosaurus antiquus)
Scale illustration of an average Thecodontosaurus compared to a person

Thecodontosaurus is among the first dinosaurs to be discovered. This discovery was made in South England in 1834. It is thought to be herbivores and among the oldest dinosaurs that existed in the late Triassic period. It is fairly easy to recognize. The tail is longer than the overall body, the legs too are longer, but the front limbs are shorter, and the long hands have extended claws. It probably walked on its two hind legs and grazed on four legs. The skull and eyes are fairly large, but the neck is rather short. In the jaws were small-to-medium-sized, serrated, leaf-shaped teeth.

The Thecodontosaurus had an overall length between 3.9’-8.2’ (1.2-2.5 m), standing height of 1.6’-3.3’ (.5-1 m), and body width of 5.9”-11.8” (15-30 cm). The weight of the Thecodontosaurus was between 24-49 lb (11-22 kg).

Maiasaura (Maiasaura peeblesorum)
Size comparison drawing of the Maiasaura compared to a person

The Maiasaura is a large herbivorous hadrosaurid dinosaur that lived in the Upper Cretaceous Period. The first fossils were found in 1978, but the genus was named in 1979, and they lived in the area covered by the state of what is now Montana, US. The name, Maisaura, which means ”good mother reptile” or ”good mother lizard” in Latin, is in reference to the find of nests with eggs, embryos, and young animals in a nesting colony; this shows that Maiasura fed its young while they were in the nest. Young animals were thought to walk on their hind legs, and adults were thought to walk on all fours.

The Maiasaura had an overall length between 26.2’-29.5’ (8-9 m), standing height of 8.2’-9.2’ (2.5-2.8 m), and body width of 3.3’-3.9’ (1-1.2 m). The weight of the Maiasaura was between 5,600-10,000 lb (2,540-4,536 kg).

Bluebuck (Hippotragus leucophaeus)
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Bluebuck compared to an average person

Right now, we only have memories of the Bluebuck (Hippotragus leucophaeus) as it is currently extinct. It inhabited the coastal plains of southern South Africa. Evidence suggests that the blueback was a large grazer with bluish-gray coats but pale whitish on the belly. It had black strong horns and less developed manes. It also had short, blunter ears and a darker-tailed tuft. The forehead on the other side was brown and the face darker. The neck was relatively long but strong, the mane short and underdeveloped, and the long white legs covered in dark bands on the front part. It was gregarious, living in small herds. Males were larger than females with large, backward-curving horns.

Bluebucks have a standing shoulder height between 39.4”-47.2” (100-120 cm), overall body length from 61”-94.5” (155-190 cm), standing height of roughly 50”-61” (127-155 cm), and a body width of 13.4”-15.75” (34-40 cm). The weight of a Bluebuck is between 265-441 lb (120-200 kg). Bluebucks have a typical lifespan of 15-22 years.
