but tazzie tigers were not a canine, and im pretty sure they didn't hunt in packs. as for the carcas, have you seen what a tazzie devil can do to a wombat carcas in 1 night? and a wombat is alot bigger then a tazzie tiger. ive always kinda thought they were out there still.

but tazzie tigers were not a canine, and im pretty sure they didn't hunt in packs. I agree, I'm sure I saw a documentary which said they were solitary. I also agree they arn't dogs, they were just shaped by the same evolutionary forces, the biggest give-a-way was they were Marsupials, while dogs certainly arn't.

I'm sorry, but a Dingo doesn't look anything like a Thylacine: Dingo: Plus Talon and bloodmoon are correct - a thylacines are not canines, they might look similar because of parallel evolution.

Very doubtful its still alive today...a carcass or tracks or SOMETHING would have been presented before now. Actually a bird species native to New zealand and thought to be extinct for over 50 years was rediscovered a while back. I can't remember exactly which one it was off hand but I think it was the Kakapo. Similar things where also said about the giant Squid and Octopus Species, thought to be myth right up until only a few years ago and recently, particularly in the U.K. panther sightings have started to be taken seriuosly. There is a reasonable possibilty that the tasmanian tiger might st... [More]

Hmm, looks peculiarly like a semi-PhotoShopped version of the Lab/German Shepherd cross that came into work, today.

Even if it was a Dingo that would be news. I don't think Dingos were ever introduced to tasmania, probably one reason the Thylacine lasted so much longer there than the mainland.

Could I get a link to the picture?

If you ask me, declairing the Thylosine extinct was very presumptious in the first place...the declairation was made when the last thylosine in captivity died...however, there are such vast areas of unexplored bush that it would be very simple indeed for the animal to still be small number no doubt, but stable.
