The Exstinct Haast Eagle of New Zealand could be brought back.
The great Haast Eagle lived in New Zealand, but went extinct around 550 years ago. This giant bird of prey was the largest eagle known to have lived. It used to hunt another bird creature called the moa. The moa birds were hunted to extinction by humans and subsequently the great eagles perished because its primary food source had vanished.
The great bird's DNA is still obtainable and many scientists, ecologists and biologist desire to bring the giant Haast Eagle back via test tube incubation and growth. There would also have to be a second resurrection of the moa bird too, as the huge eagles relied on such prey for their food. Unless, of course, the Haast Eagle might be persuaded to eat something elseSuch a feat, if achieved would be glorious.
There are all sorts of projects, that are set in theory, extinct animals of the planet. Especially the recently departed creatures like the Haast Eagle and the Moa birds. Along with giant Woolly Mammoths, these creatures may soon become a reality..
