Spoiler alert: we ate them.

It is NOT a unicorn, which is a mythological, fantasy animal which has a horse's body.

This so called unicorn, is in fact a Rhinoceras species, and can hardly be considered a unicorn, except by click bait exaggerations.

The unicorn of the sea still exists. How about some love for the narwhal?

Sorry, unicorns are a horse with a narwhal horn. Not a furry rhinoceros.

“Mummy, that man is dressed as a pretty unicorn !! <3 xxx”

“Actually you ill educated weed, I’m clearly channeling an ancient Elasmotherium Sibiricum”

A common theory is that our modern image of unicorns came from Greek explorers trying to explain the appearance of African rhinos to people who had never seen them.

Clearly farmers were tired of their virgin daughters beimg seduced by unicorns, so we ate them.

It was the size of a mammoth and had legs for galloping like a horse. That sounds terrifying. I wouldn't want to meet one of those up close, or even a distance given how it moved.

Totally worth it. 10/10 would eat again.
