A Completely Strange, Highly Endangered Mammal

For those of you interested in large mammal conservation and the possibility of bringing back species from incredibly small populations, here is a particular species of interest. It is a good example of how large megafauna can receive a lot of attention and be brought back from the brink. For good or ill, I think such a bizarre lineage deserves saving. As a side note, this blog is an incredible resource for anyone interested in zoology/evolution of terrestrial vertebrates. Be sure to check out the older versions on ScienceBlogs and Blogspot.
