Extinct: An awareness poster that documents 641 North American species and subspecies driven to extinction since the year 1642. This is by no means the total number as on going research continues to document more, and species continue to to go extinct at an alarming rate. In the middle of the list of names is Cyclura onchiopsis known as the Navassa Island (Rock) Iguana. It is believed it went extinct during the mining period in the late 19th Century. Miners, freed slaves, were treated poorly. It’s likely that ate the iguanas to extinction. The Navassa Island Iguana was originally believed to be a subspecies of Cyclura cornuta but has since be raised to full species status. The only known image of this iguana is a museum specimen.
