@kian5 There's no reason this would have been photoshopped. As it says in the deion, the Tasmanian Tiger went extinct in the early-mid 20th century. This is a legitimate photo taken of one of the last (known) surviving specimens.

Formaldehyde. Also, fetus, not fetish. =) I loved these little critters, which probably makes me biased, though I do believe there's a good chance of them being out there, just overshadowed by introduced species.

It's quite a shame that human kind was barbaric enough to terminate nearly all of the Thylacine..Such gorgeous creatures.

They are reportedly extinct, but there are hundreds of "sightings" of them still in Tasmania... Also, because they went extinct becuase of humans, scientists are trying to clone them from a fetish that is in fermaldihide (spelling)... They want to release them into the wild but the only problem is that because it would b a clone, there would be inbreeding and also they would not be able to learn to live in the wild without humans and they want the animal to stay away from people...

I love these things. There have been several sightings the the poor creatures became 'extinct,' and scientists have used computers to work out where they might find them. I've seen a stuffed one in the Madrid Natural History Museum. They're a lot smaller than you might expect. A bit bigger than a large fox.

yes they are still trying to look for a thylacine in their jungles and many people claim to have seen glimpses of it but no real physical evidence...

Yes, supposedly extinct, but many reported sightings, (including me).
Comment icon #4 Posted by jono on 6 August, 2005, 16:07
this creature is to be known as instinct, but in the last 30 years there have been reported sighting of the tasmanian tiger. the reason they are unsure about this is that most of tasmania is dense bushland which is to thick to explore. only time will tell to see if the myth is true or false

man those look cool....i want one

There are still reports that the thylacine is, in fact, NOT really extinct. That's what makes it so fascinating to cryptozoologists.
