A$25,000 for pictures of a supposed creature. Must be nice! All these stories of chasing Tasmanian Tigers are almost like hunting for Bigfoots or the Lock Ness Monsters. The only upside is we know Thylacines existed before. It would be something if come to find out they managed to survive.

Interesting. I'd love to see the alleged pics the german took. A shame they can't be found. It's a very special animal. Like a rare mix of dogg/kangaroo/zebra/fox/tiger. Check out the vids of the live one on youtube. I do hope and BELIEVE it's safe and sound far out in the woods away from human civilisation and guns.

I'd be less likely to believe it, if it weren't for the fact a species of duck was found a few weeks ago that was previously thought top be extinct. I think they thought it was extinct for at least 20 years before finding it again. That being the case, I suppose it's possible for a tasmanian tiger to still exist. It'd be great if they did.

Tasmania is 40% national parks mostly wilderness zones which are completely inaccesable by humans due to the extremely thick bush. most of the sightings are not reported due to the inability for the environment to cope with potential tourists looking for them, even the hiking tracks have limeted numbers allowed. i have lived in tassie for a few years and many people believe they still exist with most locals knowing of sightings. i am about to embark on a 2 week hike in tassie where i hope to witness a live thylacine.

Good Luck Dr Mabo, hopefully you are able to spot one. Safe journey.

they're dead.. the last one died in a hobart zoo.. and there hasnt been a reliable sighting since. much like many of the so called cryptid sightings. (and yes i do know that the thylacine is not a cryptid)

There have been plenty of sustained attempts to find them still alive in the bush, the old story that absence of evidence is not evidence of absence applies, but I would think you really would need to have seen one to bother searching.

Well as fruitless as the search probably will be, let's hope he'll film them anyway.
