Yeah but at roughly the same time they were also exploring Australia for the first time. A huge new island that no European had ever explored before, an island nearly bigger than all of Europe so of coarse everything they saw would have been new to them. Kangaroos, koalas, wombats etc. all totally different to any Eurasian/American/African animal.
Now there is a huge difference between people exploring a new country two hundred years ago to today where everywhere on Earth has pretty much been explored. No room for Dragons the length of three cars to hide.
