    Yangtze River Dolphin
    Recently (2006) determined as extinct. This animal was a freshwater dolphin that resided solely in the Yangtze River in China. Fossils date the species as old as 25 million years.

    Hirola Antelope
    Endangered. Those extra large scent glands (which get larger when excited) have earned it the nickname, "four-eyed antelope."

    Bumblebee Bat

    World's smallest mammal, right alongside the Etruscan shrew. They can hover like hummingbirds, and they weight about a much as a dime. Endangered.

    Right after I watch the first animal on the second post I know I'm traumatized for life.

    Thank you very much.

    These are absolutely fascinating..I've always been interested in animals, ever since I was a wee nino.

    Some of these are downright beautiful as well..
