Jerboas are small jumping rodents that resemble mice with long tufted tails and very long hindlegs. The long-eared jerboa can be distinguished from other jerboas by its enormous ears, which are about a third larger than its head.

Northern Muriqui (Brachyteles hypoxanthus)
Classified as Critically Endangered (CR A2cd) on the 2010 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

This species is endemic to Brazil’s Atlantic Forest region. They live in multi-male groups that can reach more than 50 animals. They have suffered from hunting and the destruction of their forests since the 16th century. Today the population is less than 1,000 individuals and is highly fragmented, with no subpopulation believed to be viable in the long term. The name muriqui comes from the Tupi Indians of Brazil, but they have also previously been called woolly spider monkeys. .

Andy Warhol: Endangered Species

In 1983, Andy Warhol created a series of ten color screenprints that portrayed endangered animals from around the world: Siberian tiger, San Francisco silverspot, orangutan, Grevy's zebra, black rhinoceros, bighorn ram, African elephant, pine barrens tree frog, giant panda and bald eagle. Using brilliant colors -- characteristic of his signature style -- and poignant expressions suggestive of the animal's fate, Warhol creates a dynamic tension between art and reality.

just read Last chance to see by Douglas Adams.. Worth to read if you're interested in endangered animals. Also because he was practically a god.
Here's a brilliant talk that pretty much sums up the book:

more than 40 percent of the land-dwelling animals that live in mangrove forests are now under pressure from habitat loss, The peculiar proboscis monkey is just one of the endangered animals unique to mangrove forests
