I hope they are still around as well. I've always found them interesting, and I'm sad I never got the chance to see a live one.

Montauk monster skull looks so much like this Thylacinus cynocephalus's skull to me but I'm an observer not an expert.

I hope they are still around also. If they are, someone going to see one and you know the idiot will most likely shoot it instead of filming it or they might film themselves shooting it. Idiot: “Hey lookie heer I done shot me a Tasmanian tiger.” Scientist: “Yeah, thanks, now they really are extinct.”

Stupid, stupid, stupid!

I assumed these were still alive...I remember they were on the Wild Thornberrys game for PS1. Why bother educating us about the habitat of an extinct mammal, really.
