What are some well known cases of animals being though to be extinct but not actually being extinct?

    The solitary bee was recently found in Britain after not being seen there for 65 years.

    The pygmy tarsier was found in Sulawesi after not being seen for almost 80 years.

    And the coelacanth was rediscovered in 1938, though it was thought to have gone extinct 65 million years ago.


    There are a lot of other examples, but these are some of the coolest of you ask me (I included the bee  because it was the most recent that I could find).
