    Benjamin, the last known Thylacine: "The Thylacine was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger. Native to continental Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea, it is thought to have become extinct in the 20th century. Intensive hunting encouraged by bounties is generally blamed for its extinction. Despite its official classification as extinct, sightings are still reported, though none proven." Photo from Hobart Zoo, 1933.

The extinct Dodo bird. Even though the rareness of the Dodo was reported already in the 17th century, its extinction was not recognised until the 19th century. This was partly because, for religious reasons, extinction was not believed possible until later proved so by Georges Cuvier, and partly because many scientists doubted that the Dodo had ever existed. Like many animals that evolved in isolation from significant predators, the Dodo was entirely fearless of humans.
