It's said that some survivors have been spotted in the wild, but I am not optimistic about that. It's an awful sad story what happened to these animals.

Yeah that's the famous Tazi tiger. It truly is sad that they were wiped out. They were hunted by farmers who complained that they were eating all of the sheep....but when you look at the picture there mouth and body proportions are not big enough to eat a sheep, so there's a bit of contraversy about that. However i reckon that there a terrific animal

see, these are the kinds of things that seem exotic to us because we dont see them anymore. like dinosaurs. we would think them about as exotic as chipmunks if they still lived today. ;)

Remember the coelacanth. The scientists were convinced that it was extinct when it suddenly showd up in 1938. The last known living tazmanian tiger died in the 30:s in captivity just like "Naotaman" wrote here above. Im convinced that the taz-tiger still is alive. Even to day people report that they have seen the animal.

If i was a Tassie Tiger I'd be hiding too. They were supposed to attack sheep, not eat them whole ;-) Not hard to rip a sheeps throat out.
