What does "extinct" mean?

My son was flying a Pterosaur, playing with dinosaurs with his brother. My husband asked why there are not any Pterosaurs flying around any more. "Because they're extinct." my son said. Husband asked, "What does extinct mean?" My son replied, "they all died before mom was born."

I feel old now.

I posted a link to this over at Cap'n Lex's blog, in a comment to his post in which he showed a pic of himself with saber and fencing suit, taken when he was picked as an All-American saber-fencer from the Naval Academy.

He blogs at

He is an officer and a gentleman, and a Christian one at that, as well as being a scholar.
