The Tiny Elephant Shrew Spotted Alive For The First Time In 50 Years

Even the endangered animals list got bigger and bigger over the last couple of years, apparently some species thought to be extinct have been rediscovered. If the last year animal experts witnessed rare sight of some incredibly elusive animals like the clouded leopard or the saki monkeys, this time a tiny and extremely cute species miraculously reappeared in the wild.

The elephant shrew has been rediscovered, after the cute tiny creatures have been listed as a "lost species" for the last 50 years. With the last sightings of the species recorded back in 1968, the elephant shrews are "back on the radar." They have been rediscovered during an expedition in Djibouti, a country in the Horn of Africa.
