This picture was taken before the beautiful thylacine went extinct. Also called a Tasmanian tiger, this species wasn’t actually a tiger, nor a canine. This was deemed the largest carnivorous marsupial on Earth. That is until the International Union for Conversation of Nature announced it was extinct in 1982.
The Tasmanian parliament did the same four years later. However, many stories come in of sightings in the wild, increasing the likelihood that a group of these animals is still living somewhere in the wild.
