It is sad to look at these creatures knowing that they are the last survivors of their kind. We should  honor these last few survivors as, for many, there is no comeback from extinction. These animals are the last members of their species:

1.World’s Last Remaining Female Yangtze Giant Softshell Turtle

The Yangtze giant softshell turtle (Scientifically termed ‘Rafetusswinhoei’) is a softshell turtle that lives in China and Vietnam. It is sometimes also referred to as the Red river giant softshell turtle and it is an extremely rare species. Just four of these turtles are known to exist: three male and one female, all in captivity. In a zoo of China, two of the turtles, a male and a female are located. When the zoo officials attempted to bring the turtles together hoping that they will mate, they were not able to produce any viable egg. As this is the last chance the scientists have to save this species, the stakes are incredibly high.

The pair would not breed without an intervention and thus the belief that the pair would mate and lay eggs has slowly faded.
