At the point when the Polynesians settled New Zealand in CE1280, the moa population dimished. Beside people, their number one predator is the Haast's eagle.

Longisquama - this is a wiped-out lizard-like reptile. The name Longisquama signifies "long scales" as a result of the eminent long structures that develops from the skin. Researchers trust that these are primitive plumes. This extinct animal is a nearby relative of winged animal because of the feature like structure.

Chalicotherium - this is an extinct browsing odd-toed ungulates from the Perissodactyla. They can be found in Europe, Africa and Asia and living from 28.4 to 3.6 mya which where existing for 24.8 million years. They are herbivore with long clawed forelimbs and stouter weight bearing hind-limbs.

Jaekelopterus - this is an extinct genus of sea scorpion. They lived 390 million years ago. They grow up to 2.5 meters long and it is known as the largest arthropod discovered. It was discovered in 2007 when Simon Braddy and Markus Poschmann from the University of Bristol found a 46 centimeter (18 inches) claw-like mouth part.

Therizinosaurus - this is called a grass shearer lizard. They lived amid the late Cretaceous Period and was one of the last and biggest representative of its unique group. They can grow up to 10 meters or 33 feet and weights 5 tons. Their fossils were discovered in Mongolia in 1948 during a joint Soviet-Mongolian fossil expedition.

Ceratogaulus - are extinct rodents from the late Miocene to early Pleistocene age. This two-horned gophers are the littlest known warm blooded animal to have horns. They develop up to 30 centimeters or 0.98 foot and has an oar like-forepaws which is adjusted for digging. They have little eyes and may have a poor visual perception.

Helicoprion - is a long-lived genus of an extinct shark-like fish. It has a spirally arranged clusters of teeth called "tooth whorls". They live during the Permian era, which is 290 million years ago.They may grow up to 3-4 meters long. They suggest that the tooth whorls are not as big of an impediment during swimming.

Opabinia - is an extinct invertebrate which found in British Columbia, Canada. They are delicate bodied animal with divided body and flaps and a fan-formed tail. This creature has five eyes, a mouth under the head that is facing backwards. They lived on the ocean bottom and using the proboscis to search out small and delicate sustenance. In 1967, Harry Whittlington discovered a decent fossilized example. In 1975, he published the detail description of this strange creature.

Hallucigenia - this extinct creature is 0.5 to 3.5 centimeter long tubular organism which seven or eight pairs of thin legs. The head and tail of this creature is hard to recognize. Scientist recommends that it has two simple eyes, a mouth with teeth and a phryngeal teeth with the front of the gut. It was classified by Simon Morris in 1977 with some distinct features.
