What does “Extinct” Mean?

The extinction of an animal or plant species occurs when there are no more of that species alive anywhere in the world.

A species is labelled extinct when it has completely died out.

This is often a natural part of evolution. For example, if there was a species of spider that evolved to only have three legs, which made it slower and less able to catch food, it would eventually die out. The species would soon become extinct.

Sometimes, extinction can happen at a much faster rate.

Imagine an isolated island, far away from any other land. On that island there is a unique species of mice.

If people settled on that island, bringing hungry cats, the cats would eventually catch and eat all the mice. Once all of the mice had all been killed, that species would be extinct.

For most dinosaurs, however, extinction is thought to have come very quickly after the meteor hit the Earth.
