After reading about the role that 19th century museums played in ensuring The Great Auk’s extinction (each museum wanted the endangered Auk to display, thus ensuring their demise) I just had to add on to the avian/mammal menagerie honoring The Great Auk, Steller’s Sea Cow, The California Grizzly Bear, and the Thylacine.
I also had several requests for a Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger, so although I really wanted to branch out into the amphibian class, I just couldn’t neglect this set. I’m also experimenting with a monochromatic background on these so we will see how they turn out. This set will be sold in a set of four with options to mix and match with the original series. Also, going forward, I will be donating 10% of all sales to the Wildlife Conservation Network http://wildnet.org/
