EXTREME CREATURES GIANTS OF THE PAST

 


Guess what it is time for extreme creatures giants of the past post for this week, this week it is the Giant Kangaroo.......

The giant short-faced kangaroo was about the same height as a red kangaroo but more then twice as heavy. Instead of a graceful snout, it had a thick flat face and long arms for pulling down branches to eat leaves.

Its extinction may have been due to climate shifts during the Pleistocene, or to human hunting. Those who support the hypothesis of a human-mediated extinction process cite that the arrival of humans to continental Australia occurred around the same time as the disappearance of this species.

  3. If the human species survives, I wonder how many other species will be extinct by then...and what will evolve to fill the gaps. Hmmm....
