Thylacine Video.

This is video from 1933 of the "last Tasmanian tiger," the thylacine. Thylacines, now extinct, were carnivorous marsupials that inhabited Tasmania until they were wiped out by a human campaign of extermination that lasted through the nineteenth and into the twentieth centuries, although thylacines were never a threat to anyone. You can learn more about them at the Thylacine Museum.

I was reminded of the thylacines when I posted the article on the danger to Tasmanian devils. Thanks, dodgyd55.

I did a huge research paper on these guys in college. Got to be an amatuer expert (is that possible?) Anywho, there are still sitings of thylacines in Australia and New Zealand. There is a chance the species is still around, just severely depleted. I live in hope, as I fell in love with the critters doing all that research.

Viva les Thylacines!
