Short-Faced Bear – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Short-Faced Bear:

The Short-Faced Bear is an extinct member of the family Ursidae or bears. It lived during the Pleistocene era, about 800,000 to 11,000 years ago.It is closely related to living bears like the Grizzly and Black Bear. It is generally believed to have grown to be much larger than any living species of bear today. It was one of the most common bears in North America, with many found in what is today California. The first documented fossil was discovered Potter Creek Cave, Shasta County, California in 1890 by American paleontologist Edward Cope. These were massive bears, with estimates that some individuals weighed 1600 to 1900 pounds, and with a stretched up nose could have reached nearly 15 feet into the air. It is not clear why these bears went extinct, and the smaller relatives the Grizzly and Black Bear survived. It could be the prey that they ate were killed off by humans, or they themselves became hunted by early humans, or that they were unable to adapt to a series of environmental changes in their range.

South China Tiger – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the South China Tiger:

The South China Tiger was a species that once was native to the provinces of Fujian, Guangdong, Hunan, Jiangxi in southern China. While the species is not extinct - there are some 30 animals in captivity - it is all but sure that the tiger is extinct in the wild. Of the six subspecies of extant tiger, the South China Tiger is considered a "stem" tiger, meaning that it could be closest to where the tiger originated. While many factors contributed to the decline of the tiger, the exploitation of the species by the fur trade along with the loss of habitat in it's native range likely led to it's extirpation in the wild. While there has been aggressive conservation projects launched by the Chinese, some conservation groups have argued that the money and efforts would be better used to save the Siberian Tiger, which they consider to have a much greater chance of survival than this rare cat.
