Tasmanian Tiger in the exhibition "Evolution in Action"

Tasmanian Tiger

The thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus) – also referred to as Tasmanian tiger or Tasmanian wolf – was the largest carnivorous marsupial on the Australian continent. In order to protect their imported sheep herds, Europeans hunted them down until the last thylacines became extinct approximately a hundred years ago.
