WORLD'S LAST GREAT AUK
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's last great auk?
The great auk was a large flightless bird that
inhabited the waters of the north Atlantic and Eastern Atlantic.
The Great Auk (Pinguinus impennis), also known as the
garefowl, was 30 - 36 inches tall and weighed about 12 pounds.
The world's last great auk was actually a mating
pair tending to their egg on Eldey Island, off the coast of Iceland.
The pair of aucks were caught on July 03 1844 by
collectors, then stuffed, and with that the great auk became extinct.
