The Thylacine (Thylacinus Cynocephalus) is not a feline, but a "tiger" only in looks.
It was a dog-sized carnivorous marsupial. It is called the Tasmanian Tiger.
This species has been extincted since the early 20th Century on the hand of humans.
They were hunted and killed in Tasmania until the last one.
Steve Irwin´s contribution to Cryptozoology was very important beyond his search for Thylacines, in Tasmania, Australia.
It is very interesting what Margaret Mittelbach and Michael Crewdson have to say in their amazing Book: "Carnivorous Nights: On the Trail of the Tasmanian Tiger."
Their first chapter opens up with the title, "A peculiar animal." They say...
"A few years ago, we began to visit a stuffed and mounted animal skin with something akin to amorous fervor. We did not tell our friends about this secret relationship.
We feared they would think it was unhealthy to be infatuated with a dead animal.
The object of our obsession resided at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, New York City."
I AGREE WITH THEM. I HOPE SCIENTIST WILL BRING THE THYLACINE BACK TO LIFE. IT IS JUST ADORABLE!! ISN´T IT?? PLEASE, LOOK AT IT...
In the world,
