Well there are always sightings down here, even on the mainland but still sadly no real, evidence that can`t be dismissed. I believe there may be a few still out there but whether we will ever catch one again is debatable!

I think it is highly likely that they were not extinct as previously believed...I mean look at the Mountain Lion in California...they were on the endangered species list and now they are simply everywhere....give the Tamanian Devil time...it'll come back.

Capture a male and a female then start a Thylacine farm... I think that you might get a few genetic mutation with only using two genetic lines. Inbreeding has always had it's drawbacks, while you promote good genes you always promote bad ones as well. Only after a long selected breeding program (approx 7 generations), can you get rid of most of the bad genes. It is a good thought though (if we only had two, at least one would be a good start).

Capture a male and a female then start a Thylacine farm... The problem is that even when it was still abundent and introduced to zoos, it never bred in captivity. Also one has to note that it always was a secretive animal who preffered to avoid human contact as much as possible. I wouldn't be surprised if few exist, and the reason no one sees them today is that their population is limited because of competition with other introduced predators such as cats, dogs, etc., rather than human hunt.

about as common as bigfoot shaped bushes in America You are right in a sence, there are still a few places in the world for many a creatures to hide, for now; as we expand and devoloped for more land for growing populations and require more rescources the world will become a smaller place. There will be no where else to hide, either they will adapt or die. We are land animals so it is only logical that we devolop all the continents of the world, before we venture else where, (the moon, Mars, under sea, (then you might see your mermaid again )). Thylacine Rules!
