Welcome Carlos! Well, you can post any photos about extinct animals, as long as you don´t hurt any copyright. If you have any self-made drawings, or drawings made by friends, that´s no problem. BTW, I´m not really sure if Megaloceros died really out during the last 5000 years.
Of course you are right. I missed the "last 5000" years bit. But, now that it comes, why the last 5000 y and not Holocene extinctions? Is there any particular reason for it? Or only the most recent, historical ones, for that matter?
If you take 10.000 years, you can also include very typical "prehistoric megafauna", for example Megaloceros, about which you can find much information and many pictures in books about prehistoric animals. But in fact it doesn´t make much difference if a species became extinct 12.000, 10.000 or perhaps 8000 years ago, this was all more or less stoneage. But at 5000 years ago, there were already several civilisations, and this makes things much more interesting (I think). Just imagine what animals still existed at the times of the early pharaos, or even at the age of the ancient greeks. If you would take only extinctions of the last 500 years, you would exclude many highly interesting species, for example the megafauna of New Caledonia, or many animals from Madagascar.

Huh... there is only a little problem here: can we put FILM photos, there? My old camera is a common old camera working with films. And the thing is, for my "amateur" botanics researches, I have made, up to now, manymanymany photographs. How can I put film photographs, there?
