  1. steller's sea cow

    Steller's Sea Cow was a large, herbivorous marine mammal that lived in the North Pacific, particularly around the Commander Islands. It was discovered by the naturalist George Steller in the 18th century. The species was known for its huge size, measuring up to 30 feet in length, and having a greyish-black, thick, and wrinkled skin. It was unable to submerge unlike other marine mammals and predominantly fed on kelp and other types of seaweed. Sadly, within 27 years of its discovery, the Steller's Sea Cow was hunted to extinction by 1768, primarily for its meat, fat, and hide.
