David Attenborough's Ark

For something completely different ....
I really enjoyed the BBC programme on Friday, where David Attenborough chose his ten favourite animals that he would most like to save from extinction. 

From the weird to the wonderful, he picked fabulous and unusual creatures that he would like to put in his 'ark', including unexpected and little-known animals such as the olm, the solenodon and the quoll. He showed why they are so important and shared the ingenious work of biologists across the world who are helping to keep them alive.

The 10 species Sir David Attenborough would take on his own personal Ark:
1. The Black Lion Tamarind
2. The Sumatran Rhino
3. The Solenodon
4. The Olm salamander
5. The Marvellous Spatuletail Humming Bird
6. Darwin’s frog
7. Sunda pangolin
8. Priam’s Birding Butterfly
9. Northern Quoll
10. Venus’s Flower Basket
