On the heels of news that scientists are working toward “resurrecting” Neanderthals through cloning; formerly extinct animals are mysteriously, and suddenly, “back from the dead.”
The Daily Mail is reporting a study has found that a third of all mammal species declared extinct in the past few centuries have turned up alive and well.
In other words, “oops, we just ‘found’ 67 different animal species that we thought were all dead.”
