I Wish It Wasn't Extinct

The Quagga. Went extinct in 1883 (unfortunately). This is (or was) a Half Zebra, Half Horse. This is the first extinct species to have its DNA studies.



I only wish I could have seen one.

There are zonkeys (half zebras, half donkeys) still around. They have some at an animal retreat in South Carolina. Google it.

I was going to get a tattoo of this animal, but if I ever really do I would use a cooler picture of him...

I just wanted to let you know that aside from one or two posts, most of your titles and many of your comments are very offensive. The best offense is a good defense. I'm a redskins fan, although football is not my thing, but my best friend's life revolves around the Steelers XLIII. Anyway for me I think of chess. I love Elliott Smith, but i'm not particular for other bands you listen to. I listen to Lagwagon, Propagandhi, Streetlight Manifesto, The Deviates, The Descendents, The Vandals, etc. but I also like to learn songs by Jimmy Paige and Elliott Smith. I live in Maryland. I recently have rediscovered my faith in God, sometimes I ask him to make me make the right choices in the future, but all I can really do is repeat to myself... The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.

I've been Roman Catholic since my Baptism, and cried in sympathy when I saw Jesus on the cross one of the first times my mom took me to church. There are many monuments to Christ in the world. He is a historical figure, and his coming was foretold all over the world at least that is what I believe after righting a paper on the Pyramid of Giza. I am not trying to make you return to God. I'm just sayin you seem like a smart guy so try to take it easy and have tolerance for those who are not quite as blessed.
