Twitter Gets Funny About Extinct Animals (Viral Tweets)

Is there any real way of knowing if an animal is extinct or not? How do scientists make that decision? Those were the thoughts of one twitter user that went viral all over twitter, and we cannot stop laughing at the responses. 

Honestly, they're right. How can we know for sure? Some extinct animal species end up randomly being found in some places on Earth every once in a while. Who's to say that they're not simply hiding from us, totally done with all of our weird human shenanigans? They're probably messing with scientists just as much as they're messing with us, and honestly, that is one of the reasons why we totally love nature.

Now imagine a penguin the same height as you. That changes things. Penguins the size of humans... the idea sounds like it comes from science fiction. But it actually just comes from science. It was recently discovered that giant penguins used to exist. We are not kidding.
