Caption: Steller's sea cow. Computer artwork of two Steller's sea cows (Hydrodamalis gigas). This large herbivorous marine mammal grew up to 8 metres in length and weighed up to 11 tonnes. It was found along the North Pacific coast. It was discovered by the naturalist Georg Steller in 1741 in the Bering Strait. However, by 1768 Steller's sea cow had been hunted to extinction for its skin, meat and blubber.
