Amazing Extinct Animals

#1 Quagga
Like a mix between the zebra and horse, the quagga was striped in the front half of its body (with brown and white) and solid brown in its backside with some white. It was the first extinct animal to have its DNA analyzed in 1984, and it was found that it was more closely related to the zebra than the horse. Because they were so easy to find, they were hunted for their meat and skins. They were also shipped from South Africa to Europe for the zoos often.
#10 Giant Ground Sloths
Ground sloths (which is actually used to describe several very gigantic sloths) could be as large as 20 feet an weigh up to four tons. More like an elephant than the cute cuddly sloths we see today. It’s believed that they were hunted to death considering how much meat they would’ve had on them, no one is really sure as to how this species became extinct.
