  1. I didn’t think wolverines were real animals until recently. And all I know about them without googling is that they exist, and aren’t just a sports mascot.

  2. I’m not sure if this is what the person is asking, but the last animal I discovered was a tapir. I had no idea what they were until I saw one at a zoo.

  3. Javelinas.

    A friend in Arizona was telling me about an encounter she had with one. I vaguely remember having heard of one before but when I googled it, I was like “I have never seen this being before”. Really needed some eye bleach after that one.

  4. ‘Freshwater’ Moray Snowflake Eel (can live a few years in freshwater, does better in brackish, and best in marine water). I didn’t know they existed! Coolest water pet we have!! (We have a few fish aquariums (15). )
