Stumbled across this footage this afternoon, basically shows a creature crossing over some steep rocky features very close up,
What is the possibility this could be the real deal?

Sadly, the chance of these creatures being alive today is slim. With humans spreading out into this land further and further, even if we did, it would be the sort of thing you'd hear about after the fact.
I mean we have cases where brand new species of spider have been found, then ignored as it would interfere with the mining rights.
But we've spread into every livable area of this country. We're huge, but not a lot of land where you can live unless you can survive desert heat and red dirt, and the urban sprawl here is atrocious.
I'd absolutely love to see one of these creatures alive and in real life. To imagine an animal so similar to other animals, yet that has evolved so separately on an entirely separate continent... Typical humans come along and eat it or hunt it to extinction. For all the good I see in us as an animal that can shape it's world... I often despise us for it. Because we just don't think until it's after the fact.
Such big brains, but we only ever use them to work out what we did wrong, and not how to do something right the first time.
