Various sources on the net have come up with a list of the rarest animals in the world, but the most common animal on their list is the Pinta Island tortoise. This giant tortoise can be found in the Galapagos Islands, and the reason that it is considered the rarest animal on earth is because there is only one left of the species alive. “The species was considered extinct until 1971, when a lone example was located by rangers. Since then, the Charles Darwin Research Station has been searching for a female tortoise, even posting a reward of $10,000 to those that find one.” This remaining male Pinta Island tortoise is referred to as the “Lonesome George.”
Yes, as cericag pointed out, it seems as though the consensus is the Pinta Island Tortoise. Other species that make the list are the Baiji, Vancouver Island Marmot, Seychelles Sheath-Tailed Bat and Jarvan Rhino.
