Despite the intensive exploration of our planet, there remain surprising gaps in our knowledge of the animal world. New birds, mammals, reptiles, fishes and amphibians are still described every year. Matthew Bille seeks to introduce readers to the discoveries, rediscoveries, and sightings of unclassified creatures made since the 1960s. The animals being presented include large mammals from Vietnam, a Tasmanian pouched wolf, pygmy elephants, and a dolphin with two dorsal fins. Exhaustively researched and scientifically accurate, Rumors of Existence is a testimonial to the variety of life existing on this planet and a plea to explore and preserve what remains of the wild.
