Which large African mammal, was the first to disappear in historic times. It was related to the Roan and Sable antelope?

The Bluebuck or blue antelope sometimes called blaubok.

I believe it became extinct around 1800 :hmz:

"The Bluebuck or Blue Antelope (Hippotragus leucophaeus), sometimes called Blaubok, is an extinct species of antelope, the first large African mammal to disappear in historic times. It is related to the Roan antelope and Sable antelope, but slightly smaller than either".

:think: Aspalathus recurvispina is a plant of the same Genus as that from which the internationally known Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) herbal tea is made.

Phokojwe :thumbs_up:

..........indeed the Canarian Oystercatcher. "These shorebirds lived on the Canary Islands off the coast of west Africa, and died out due to depletion of its shellfish food source due to commercial fishing. It’s unclear exactly when the last birds died, local lighthouse keepers and fishermen said they hadn’t seen it by 1940, but reports of sightings happened through the ’80s. By 1994, it was officially declared extinct. Only 4 specimen of stuffed birds exist in museums today".

It was the cousin of the mammoth and stood 9 to 10 ft. tall at the shoulders and tipped the scales somewhere between 5 and 6 tons. Its legs were short in comparison to the rest of its body, which was entirely covered with a mat of long, thick, dark brown hair. Two large tusks were positioned on either side of its trunk.

What creature was it?
