That is too bad.  But all things must end.  At least we have documentation of it that will be reasonably thorough.  It is estimated that 99% of all species that have ever lived on Earth are extinct.  Imagine how many creatures existed that we will never know about because they left no traces of their existence.  Off the top of your head how many dinosaurs can you think of? I am guessing that I could name somewhere around 70 (I might actually try to write down as many as I can remember if I get a chance at work tomorrow).  And that is over a 65 million year time frame.  There is no way we have discovered all diversity of life that has lived on this planet.

I don't know where I was going with this... I just like learning, but I am tired.  I don't want those rhinos to be extinct, but like everything else that failed to adapt, it is now gone.
