Even if they know for title they never seen an animal like the fossils they find this didn’t convince them it was an extinct. For some people they figured there must be a super low population of these things still living out there never seen before by humans. So naturally they believed animals like this were still prowling. Thanks to ignorance to the wild around them and ancient animals they could not make proper reproductions of these animals of what they originally were. They based everything on superficial assumptions or guesses. This is what lead to the dinosaur becoming the inspiration of griffons. Some of the best preserved specimens of extinct animals have been found intact in ice in the thick permafrost of Siberia, a cold and widely forested area that takes up around a third to a half of Russia. These specimens give a real insight into the appearance, behaviour and even the food that these extinct animals once ate, and by comparing them to their modern day relatives, we can bring them to life, if you’ll forgive the pun. They offer a glimpse into the lives of these beautiful creatures that are unfortunately not around today.
