There are many endangered animals. It is hard to say that one is more endangered than another.

Extinction is a part of the evolutionary process. We often tend to focus our attention on animals that we enjoy seeing because they are unique, beautiful and colorful, or very large. earthsendangered.com lists more than 10,000 animal species that are considered endangered.
