10 Extinct Creatures Thought To Still Be Alive

Tasmanian Tiger

The Tasmanian Tiger were often hunted after becoming a threat to local livestock. The last one is said to have perished in 1936 due to hunters and loss of habitat. In 1979, however, workers at Lang Lang spotted one in the early morning hours. It was even reported that the people had not been drinking at the time.


The Baiji were dolphins found only in the Yangtze River. At one time, the species was quite plentiful. However, they were declared officially extinct back in 2006. Just one year later, though, a group of scholars and scientists are said to have spotted one.
