I haven’t seen the Irish Elk mentioned yet. They evolved enormous horns through sexual selection and they went extinct because, according to one common theory, the horns made them ineffective at life overall. The males had to have constant neck pain. (deathuntoourenemies)

The kiwi bird, its a large round body with a massive beak, cant fly, cant climb, cant defend itself from anything. According to ancient maori tales, tastes amazing. (That-nz-guy)

Adult moths of the Saturniidae family (luna moths, etc.) have no mouths or digestive tracts and die of starvation. Their sole purpose after pupating is to reproduce and die. (pawedbar)
