  • If something's hard to do, then it's not worth doing

I have a very interesting book which is quite good. Because it lists newly discovered, supposedly extinct, re discovered and likely animals.
I like the book because every animal the writer talks about is likely to exist. Due to genuine scientists sighting the animals.
Has anyone else read this book?

In the book he talks about various animals including

stellar's sea cow
the takahe
eastern cougar
eskimo curlew
dusky seaside sparrow
sinai leopard
ivory billed woodpecker
giant gecko
mysterious whales
double banded argus
kellas cat
king cheetah
kamchatka bear

The Eastern Cougar is real, it's been reintroduced by several states in order to cull the deer herds. Seems silly to include that one, but it's their book not mine.

    Some say he will never be.

I remember watching a documentary about a guy who lives in the eastern US said his pittbull was killed
by some animal. Later in the doc a man photographed what looked like was a cougar not far from the man's
house

Does the book mention a Coelacanth? It is a fish once thought to have gone extinct in the cretaceous period
but was rediscovered in 1938 off S. Africa.

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much of it can make you arrogant & egotistical.

Searching a couple on the list  I found...
King Cheetahs exist though extremely rare.
Genuine scientists sighted the Ivory-billed woodpecker too, not too long ago, but there is no definitive evidence other than some sighting reports. Apparently we've destroyed habitat large enough to support a population of these large birds.

From what I remember reading a few years ago...I wonder
Are those actual "Eastern" cougars? As opposed to known "western" cougars in the east?
Which are different from the Eastern cougar thought extinct.

You have me on that, I wasn't aware there was a difference, unless they're the same species just in different locations. Much like the Eastern and Western Diamond backs Rattlers. Other than a very slight difference in their coloration and the pattern on them they are the same species, in fact unless you lay them side by side they look alike to me.

Florida panthers of course exist. But you are correct in that many sites I looked up science claims cougars (eastern or western) are extinct in the east. Except for migrants from the west or Florida, escaped pets.

Info on native Eastern cougar or western/Florida migrants.

However, I do not think mainstream wildlife fully agrees with some of this site's other stances/assumptions.

Well, I suppose they have their issues over what's real and what isn't same as many of us do as well.

Coelacanth was mentioned as animal that's been rediscovered in the book.
