GeoJeopardy! Fridays #78

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because it's the end of the year so lets deal with some extinctions.

- Where the Wild Things Were -

In prehistoric times 10 foot tall "terror birds" ranged over much of this continent, including Patagonia

  The shamainu or Honshu type of this canine, died out early in the 20th century


 Though specimens still exist in zoos, the Barbary lion, native to the north of this continent, is extinct in the wild


  The Xerces Blue of this insect, native to sand dunes in San Francisco's Sunset District, became extinct in the 1940s


The bulldog rat disappeared around 1900 from this Aussie-owned island named for a holiday

All the answers as well as any other previous GeoJeopardy! questions can be found over at my website by clicking the link.
