Coelocanth! thought to be extinct thousands of years ago, but it showed up off the coast of Madagascar! If we're lucky (we're not) some of the extinct animals are just "hiding". Every so often there is a thylacine siting...

On endangered species, seems like the biggest threat is habitat destruction. It affects all animals at once, and it moves at a rapid pace.

And finally, some animals (like Strop noted) are yet to be found! A small mammal was found on Borneo few years ago, not sure if it was identified yet; and a known leopard was discovered to be a new species (GO BORNEO!)

So from this, y'all now know why deforestation is such a big deal.
