10 Creatures People Didn’t Think Existed
In the span of less than a week, there’s news that Bigfoot and el Chupacabra may have been discovered. At this rate, Nessie is going to pop up next week and the Mothman will knock on someone’s door in West Virginia and ask to borrow a cup of sugar.
I wanted to do today’s Q10 on animals that were thought to be mythical but ended up being real; however, I couldn’t find that many. So it’s a combined list of that and animals that were thought to be extinct but were rediscovered at some point. Those types of animals are called Lazarus species, by the way… a rather fitting name.
