I also have prints of paw tracks and after being reviewed by an expert he put them down to a possible panther but more likely marsupial lion.

I wonder what he was an expert in, as the footprints of the two should look nothing like each other. Thylacoleo had a very peculiar hand and foot anatomy that would not really be mistaken for anything else by an actual expert.

Do you think the pic is of a marsupial, or a cat? You called it both.  



Sure there can be, we just don't have a specimen yet. Any cat can be melanistic.


I met an American who claims he has seen black pumas in the states.

Well..Thylacoleo carnifex is also called the "Marsupial Lion" and it isn't a lion.

The Thylacine is also called the "Tasmanian tiger" but it isn't a tiger..

The name "Marsupial cat" is just a name..To show that it has cat-like traits but marsupial tracks. I think the picture from  the Lithgow panther footage is a feral cat!!It is not a panther- Melanistic (black) Leopard..Although science is giving up on that name for the leopard..

I have over 30 tracks of that particular black animal, hair samples and other evidence. These marsupial cats (panthers) we talk of have marsupial-type foot structures not catlike..They have a distinct lobe that no other animal possesses, outside of a Marsupial.

I thought the tail sticking out from it's behind was marsupial-like.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

I have seen countless pictures and video of "black panthers" that were really nothing more than big black house cats. From a distance I can see where someone might be mistaken. I agree that, at least in the states, cougars are making a comeback east of the Mississippi river. This is a fact, but no evidence of black panthers or black cougars has ever existed. Some cats can have a melanistic stage, but it has never been documented in Cougars. From the single picture presented, I am going to say it is a big black house cat.
