Since I was a kid I was always fascinated by the story of the Thylacine. I think it is a beautiful looking animal and such a shame that this relatively recent extinction was never avoided by humans - The last one died in a zoo in 1936 which is not that long ago - if only someone thought about saving them!

It was then fantastic to see some live video footage of the Thylacine here:

you may have come across it before but it is fantastic to see live footage of this animal walking, moving around and eating. I find this video fascinating.

Enjoy!

Thankyou very, very much for the link to these magnificent little films !!!!

It is so awfully sad that such a beautyful, fascinating creatrue was not saved.
They do certainly not look happy in those small, ugly cages, no wonder they would not breed in captivity Sad
I did not know they were so large, - and look at those patterns in the furs Shocked

Makes me think about the actual look of the animals that we only know as fossiles .
Imagine what we would get out of finding only the bones of a thylacine. Or a zebra, giraffe...a red river hog, or a king fisher, or.... scratch

One of my favourite animals, I just wish that people knew that they were the last ones.

I'm one of those hopeful few that believe that all the sightings are true and that Thylacines are still alive. It's only hope but it's better than nothing.

I wish there was a video with recorded sound, I'd love to know what these gorgeous creatures sounded like.

Thylacine sightings continue to be made in South Tasmania, the undeveloped area of the country, to this day. There is still hope for this fascinating creature.

I hope and cross my fingers !

Only I am very suspicious about such "sightings".
Last year more and more people reported to have seen a cugar here in Denmark. It turned out to be a very nice and tame yellow Labrador Laughing

Here's a link for you, Susanne, you "Doubting Thomas"... Laughing :

Here is a BBC report about the rediscovery of the legendary Ivory-Billed Woodpecker:

I have a documentary somewhere about the wildlife in Tasmania, and I remember that much of it examined the possibility of the continued existence of the Thylacine. I'll locate it and see if I can post some of it here for all to view.

That was amazing, thanks for sharing Numaan. What a beautiful animal, it's so sad it's gone! I didn't realise how big they were, they were such unusual looking creatures.
I hope the sightings are real and there are some out there still.

I heard that scientists were looking into cloning thylacines from DNA they extracted from a pickled thylacine foetus in a jar :O

It would be pretty amazing if they could clone them, sorta like Jurassic Park, but with an animal that actually went extinct before its time.

Thanks for the link! I really hope there is a pocket of the population hidden somewhere and not completly extinct. Its sad to see the last video of this animal. Sad pale
