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.
