Three northern white rhinos existed, and a couple days ago, the oldest living male died, leaving two females and DNA.

Sudan, a northern white rhino who was suffering from a degenerative muscle and bone condition lived up to 45-years-old before he was put down in Kenya. Sudan was decided to be put down because he was in so much pain that he couldn’t even stand, so the poor creature was put out of its misery. With the DNA from Sudan and his daughter and granddaughter, scientists hope to make more of the species so we won’t have this beautiful kind go extinct. The hope is to clone another male. Sudan lived a life of pain, but in his final 24 hours, it had worsened to the top, sending extreme pain throughout the whole body of the creature.

Besides cloning, scientists have saved Sudan’s sperm, so now we have a 50% chance of getting a male or a female, but even if we do not get a male, with advances in genetics, scientists could alter the girl into a boy. More details will be out to the public soon.

Hopefully, the species doesn’t disappear from us.
