      >tfw even if you did bring them back they would all die again from avian malaria
      A lot of island obscure songbirds look so cool, it’s kinda sad to read about them and how many of them just die out with zero records

        >Virtually every individual of endemic species below 4,000 feet (1,200 m) in elevation has been eliminated by the disease. These mosquitoes are limited to lower elevations, below 5,000 feet (1,500 m), by cold temperatures that prevent larval development. However, they appear to be slowly gaining a foothold at higher elevations and their range may be expanding upwards.[11] If so, most remaining Hawaiian land birds may become at risk to extinction.

        >Most of the Hawaiian Islands have a maximum elevation of less than 5,000 feet (1,500 m), so with the exception of the island of Hawaiʻi and East Maui, native birds may become extinct on every other island if the mosquito is able to occupy higher elevations.

          Hawaii is one of the few places where eradicating mosquitoes is 100% warranted. They aren’t native and weren’t introduced until after contact. People would appreciate it. The birds would have a chance at recovery. And the native freshwater fish don’t even eat them since they’re all either algae grazers venturing in from the ocean or gobies.

      I would only bring back animals that went extinct in the last 100 to 300 years or so, keep most of the ecologies of the world intact and similar, just fixed by human industrialization.

      Reviving ALL animals driven extinct by humans or resetting animals back to how they were 10k years ago would make the planet almost alien. Probably too hot for any of them to survive anymore anyway, even without humans.

        You have amazing taste, I went to a Permian display in a London museum in the summer and they had a fully reconstructed fossil and an animatronic Gorgon next to it.

      Real answer, thylacine. It would be awesome if they’re still alive now in hiding but that’s pretty doubtful

        This. They could at least remain stable on Tasmania, even if Dingos will gently caress them over everywhere on the mainland.

          They looked very feliform. I wonder if they were related to fossas somehow.

            No, they’re marsupials. Only thing further would be an echidna or platypus.

            The tiger stripes are cute and kittylike though.

        I’ve always been fascinated by the Thylacine.

        I would also like to see pic related to make a return to the wild. It may be possible due to breeding programs.

        Go one step further, the Marsupial Lion, the Thylacoleo which more and more evidence seems to show it was made extinct by the arrival of humans. Would have have been amazing to see such a powerful marsupial apex predator

            New Zealand is even more tragic. It was the last part of the Earth (other than Antarctica) to be settled by humans, the Maori only reached it around 700 years ago.

          They are probably Australia’s equivalent to a leopard or a jaguar back in the days. I am not sure if they can survive today by hunting red kangaroos though.

            Despite being roughly jaguar sized they were too hyper specialized for larger game. Maybe if we plopped them in Africa they’d make it.

      Anyone suggesting anything older than the pleistocene is a retard. There’s no natural habitat left for them and zoos wouldn’t know how to take care of a sauropod or liopluerodon either.
