I really hope that there are some left alive, but I feel sorry for any that are caught, poor thing will end up being sliced and diced no doubt

Nope they have something like an $50k security on them. in other words if you kill an animal said to be extinct or its species only as somthing like 10 or less around now then it as this price aswell, If one person kills it they have to pay that if 5 people are involved all five pay the same amount.

It would be an international felany to cull or kill one. Even in the name of science. At most they could only take blood samples and observe it.

I'm pretty sure their still alive, I mean they weren't that many to begin with, so its not improbable that they simply remained hidden from humans for so long barrig the occassional sighting.

marsupials ARE mammals. They are simply a sub-set of mammals which carry their developing babies in pouches such as Kangeroos, Tasmanian Devils etc

Australia, being isolated from most the world for a while developed a bunch of interesting animals, the marsupials being one. I think Australia and NZ are also known for their monotremes (platypus being one), regarded as a missing link between reptiles and mammals (they lay eggs instead of bearing live young, and yet produce milk to feed them).


As for the Tasmanian Tiger....another example of how man do not appreciate animals until they are gone !(read Dr. Suess' The Lorax!)

I am beginning to think these sightings are just wishful thinking....

The tasmanian tiger probably exists in the wild heart of tasmania. Even if it doesn't they've set aside a reserve for them!

I wish, I wish he'd go away.
