Tasmanian Tigers Return?
Leave it to Australia to produce another weird creature! Thought to be extinct, this animal that looks like a combination of several others, may be hiding out in the wilds of Oz.
The Thylacine, or ‘Tasmanian Tiger’, was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times and the last one is thought to have died in Hobart zoo in 1936. However, credible sightings have prompted scientists to embark on a serious investigation to see if some have survived. Professor Bill Laurance is deploying 50 camera traps in the hope of capturing footage of the mysterious animal.
