10 Previously Extinct Creatures Given A Second Chance


10 Previously Extinct Creatures Given A Second Chance



Scientists and biologists are constantly warning the world of how we are driving so many different species into extinction, and while this may be completely true, there are new species cropping up all the time. However, some of the animals we previously thought to be totally extinct may not have been. Scientists simply passed over one or two in their natural habitats. Here are ten previously extinct animals who have been given a second chance at life.

New Holland Mouse

The New Holland Mouse was originally discovered and written about back in 1843. Following that, though, the mouse vanished, and most thought it went extinct. It was rediscovered in 1967, but can only be found in Australia.

Terror Skink

While the Terror Skink does have a rather interesting name, we once thought it was completely extinct. Scientists discovered a specimen living in New Caledonia in 2003. The skink grows up to 50 centimeters long, and has sharp teeth that curve.
