I do hope they are still there in the forrests of Queensland.... The forests of Tasmania you mean right? Queensland is a state situated on the upper east side of the mainland.

I agree with Ravinar... But then theres the whole cloning situation going on, clone some lost animals perhaps?? Even though cloning could become the end of us, ya just never know...

I think they do still exist. I have seen pictures on this site and others that people have taken very recently and they sure do look like a Thylacine. I mean, unless there is another striped four legged canine looking animal running around Tasmania................. (And yes, I know it's not a canine. I said "canine looking" )

There was a link here a year or two ago about a cat trying to clone a thylacine. I wonder what came from that?

When did cats gain the ability and knowledge to clone? Wow, they're smarter than I thought...

Cats have all kinds of secrets.

Cats can also breathe underwater and shoot laser beams from their eyes. If we knew about this we'd ruin their plot for world domination. Hello Mod! Off topic you say? Surely not!

Well, my two cats certainly have me trained, that's for sure. If they're in cahoots with the Thylacines, we're screwed!
