Extinct Animal Shows Up In Photo

The Zanzibar leopard was officially declared extinct 25 years ago, but the classification has been called into question after a wildlife biologist caught the elusive predator on camera.

“To find rare animals is difficult. To find extinct animals is frankly impossible,” biologist and tracker Forrest Galante told “I absolutely lost my mind at the fact that we had accomplished the impossible, and we had found an extinct animal, something the world had written up as gone forever.”

A Zanzibar leopard was briefly spotted walking into the frame of a hidden camera for Galante’s new show, “Extinct or Alive,” before disappearing back into the trees.

“I couldn’t believe what I was looking at,” he said. “Everything I’ve worked on for years and years came into fruition in one second.”

Galante explained the breakthrough moment came as they were reviewing footage after about two weeks into filming on the island, located off the eastern coast of Africa.
