Hydrodamalis gigas: Applying genomics to the extinct Steller’s Sea Cow.
[sciencythoughts.blogspot.com]
The Steller’s Sea Cow, Hydrodamalis gigas, was first described by German naturalist and explorer Georg Wilhelm Steller in 1741, and became extinct 27 years later, presumably as a result of Human activities. As a Sirenian reaching over 10 m in length and weighed in excess of 10 metric tons and living in the subarctic waters around the Commander Islands, of the Russian Far East, Steller’s Sea Cow was a very unusual Animal (all other known Sirenian species are tropical or subtropical in distribution, and the largest reach about 4 m in length and weigh at most 1.5 tons). As with many other extinct Animals, understanding the biology of the Steller’s Sea Cow, has been difficult.
