Do you think it still exists or is extinct.
I watched a show ray mears did about tasmanian wildlife and he spoke to some people who claimed to have seen it.
I personally thought they seemed truthful and belivable.
I think they could still exist.

I'd like to think it still existed, but then I'd like to think we haven't driven the world's tiger population into terminal decline as well.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

They were thought to be extinct, but I too have heard of reports of sightings of it. I think they could possibly still be alive, keeping hidden somewhere.

I think its dead, it seems all we have to go by are people saying they saw it.

people lie, and or are often wrong.

While i agree 110%

It could definitely be possible in my opinion. Unlikely, but possible. Maybe there's a small population that's still alive somehow?

That's true. There have web a few sightings around, there also isn't much to conflict with as far as a Tasmanian tiger goes, it's unique in the area it lives in.

If I were the guys looking for the thylacine and I found solid evidence for it I would not disclose the information. Can you imagine all the crazy people that would show up in Tasmania to look for it? Of course it would be good for the tourist industry.

Thylacines are one of my favorite topics, but I'm doubtful there are any still out there. Also I definitely recommend watching the movie The Hunter, or reading the book it's based on, very good.

  • Yeah, then you woke up with your head in your cornflakes.

I watched a documentary on it some time back, quite depressing really. They had them in zoos all around the world but people were too naive to consider conservation, they just wanted to 'have the last one' back then.

I don't think there's any way they're still around, they were killed off out of ignorance and they weren't intelligent enough to learn to avoid humans.

Hi,

People often really truly believe they saw things they did not see. That's how magicians make a living.

Someone being sincere in their belief that they saw a Tas Tiger doesn't mean that it actually the case.

That being said, I believe they are still there, but in very small numbers. Part of that belief may be more hope than reason. I certainly do they think they persisted for some time after the last verified sighting, but whether still around is another question.
