There are many factors which contribute to certain animals going extinct, none as crazy as a meteor crashing of course, although that is pretty cool. In today’s world, extinction can be more commonly linked to climate change, pollution, poaching, or deforestation. But here’s the best part, there have been a few lucky critters out there, who despite all the odds, slipped through the cracks and were rediscovered. They basically did the impossible…they survived. Take a look at who those lucky few are!
The sea sponge is commonly found in aquariums and ocean photography but it wasn’t so long ago that they were approaching extinction. They’re certainly funny looking but in a cute kind of way.
