28. The Discovery & Rediscovery Of Species
- Most Impactful: The Dinosaurs, Specialized Sea Creatures
When we first began as humans on this planet, especially once we moved away from the Neanderthal level, animals were a huge fascination for us. We even used them as not only food but also as tools. Whether that was using them as aids in moving equipment or travel or using their bones to make weapons, they were massively important.
As we became more advanced, we wanted to see newer species of animals too. Eventually, we discovered the dinosaurs that lived millions of years before us. We then discovered newer mammals and sea creatures in different places around the world. Yet the most amazing is the rediscovery of once thought to be extinct animals too. Animals like Omura’s whale, Pinocchio Lizard, and many more have surprisingly been found once more after decades of assumed extinction.
