Again i must state the absence of a creature from the fossil record does not mean that creature did not exist. to become a fossil, or preserved bones, mummies, etc is extremely rare. yes it occurs, we have 1000's of fossils, but they are a small percentage of the actual animals that roamed the earth.
im sorry but if a unicorn existed we would know, and there would be physical evidence found

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

My own theory is that unicorns resulted from Greeks describing the Indian rhino to the folks back home as "a hippopotamus with a horn on its nose." (Greeks knew about hippos.) Since 'hippopotamus' is literally 'river horse' in greek, the description probably mutated from 'a river horse with a horn on its nose' to just 'a horse with...' as soon an someone who didn't know what a 'river horse' was heard it.
That makes sense, I can see that happening.

People believed that the mountain gorilla did not exist before they got a hold of some. Could it not be possible that an animal existed that only a few had seen, and then became extinct before there was time to gather tangible proof?
