There’s some evidence that the Thylacine isn’t extinct.

And the Giant Beaver, well...

Ivory-billed woodpecker and Steller’s sea cow, for me.

And mammoth too.

No short-faced bears. No way.

I thought a quagga was a zebra-like thing, not a bird?

More cool ones: Moa, Haast’s eagle, megalania.

I thought an Ibex was a type of antelope. Never heard of a Pyrenean Ibex horse. I am a horse breeder and well versed in history, breeds etc. I've never heard of this animal, whatever it is.

The Passenger Pigeon or Wild Pigeon

:sigh:

People do realize why this bird was hunted in the first place, right?

Gigantopithecus, too. Except he’s still around under different names; Bigfoot, Sasquatch, etc.

The Tasmanian Tiger was a marsupial.

BTW - I live in an Agenda 21 "large predator" corridor. Do you want to relocate me so some on your list - the Smilodon, formerly local - won't run into me toting a .505 Gibbs?
