I noticed that a lot of the animals were small ones, and not a lot of larger ones like lions, tigers, etc. Most were birds, rodents, frogs, fish,
snails.... I'm not down-playing the severity of these animals going extinct by any means, because I think it's terrible and it saddens me. It's just
an interesting perspective to see them all lined up in a list that shows a bit of Darwinism at work. We really have no way of knowing if these species
were meant to survive or if they were no longer necessary in the overall ecology or driven extinct due to man's doing, although there are a few that
we know man was directly involved with their drive toward extinction (rhinos and tigers especially).
