Scientists have scanned all known preserved Tasmanian tiger "joeys" to better understand the marsupial's key early development phases.

The study tracks the changes to the infants' skeleton and internal organs as they grew inside the mother's pouch.

It captures in detail the transition the tiger joey made from something that resembled all other marsupials to something that looked more dog-like.

Do they have enough material to clone them ? But would be harder with marsupial because the mother would see first hand that her baby is not the same species and probably will kill it.
