The coolest things in life are found by science, not by circuses, and in 1992 the Ministry of Forests and the World Wildlife Federation discovered an actual, real life, honest-to-Bailey unicorn in Vietnam. The unicorn is actually called a saola (pronounced sow-la), and these magical creatures have only been documented in the wild four times.
Saolas have two horns which can be about 20" long and the animals weight about 175-200 lbs, which is incredible because at only 33" tall, these pint-sized linebackers aren't even tall enough to ride the ferris wheel. The population is so scarce and the animals so shy that it took a hidden camera 15 years to photograph these wild treasures, and the species is so rare that even spell check doesn't recognize their name.
The exact population of the species is unknown, but scientists do know that saola are critically endangered. I hate to tell you that your childhood dream has come true, only for it to be snatched away, but achieving your dreams takes work, dedication, and-- in this case-- a global effort led by a team of activists and scientists. To keep this dream alive (literally), you can throw some money at the problem (at the very least, but I'm not going to ask you to quit your job and start a new life in the forests of Vietnam, chained to trees in order to protect the saola's habitat. Unless you want to, because that'd be awesome) by donating to the World Wildlife Federation.
