    How many species of animals, fish, plants (or anything else) do you think are still undiscovered?

    This world is so vast that I often wonder how many things are still left to be discovered. I really wonder if all the things that are now declared extinct are truly extinct. What are your thoughts?

    If they are undiscovered, how can I number them? Though I agree with you, they are quite a few animals that haven't been realized. Most live in the ocean and rivers.

    I would like to think that the majority of undiscovered species of animals live in deep waters. Also some sea creatures thought too be extinct might have a greater chance of existing without being detected in deeper or unexplored waters.

    Estimates range from 10-100 million in total

    1.75 million recorded

    230,000 species are plants and there are estimated to be at least 200,000 more species

    100,000 plants are on the red list

    52,000 are endemic
