The thylacine, more commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger, once ranged on the Australian continent. This was long before sea levels rose and separated Tasmania from the mainland approximately 12,000 years ago. Within 10,000 years these carnivorous marsupials were extinct from the continent. With the arrival of European settlers to Tasmania in 1800, only an estimated 5000 remained alive in the world.
In this episode, we discuss the possibility that this creature did not become extinct as scientists claim. They may actually still exists in the wilderness of Australia and Tasmania. Join us as we discuss what happed to the creature to make it seem extinct, and the many sitings that may prove it’s still out there.
