The Tasmanian Tiger: New Book



If the saga of the Tasmanian Tiger (a.k.a. the Thylacine), and the theory that it still exists, fascinates you, then you won't want to miss this new book: The Tasmanian Tiger: Extinct or Extant?

With a foreword from Dr. Karl Shuker, and edited by Rebecca Lang, it's a book not to be missed.

And here's the publisher's info on the book:

"Does the Tasmanian Tiger still roam the island state, parts of the Australian mainland, and the northern land mass of Irian Jaya-Papua New Guinea? Despite being hunted to extinction in the early part of the 20th century, the Tasmanian Tiger continues to stalk the imaginations of people the world over. What's more, hundreds of reports of the striped dog-like marsupial with the fearsome gaping jaw are made each year in Australia. In The Tasmanian Tiger: Extinct or Extant?, biologists, geneticists, naturalists, and academics explore the evidence for and against the continuing existence of Thylacinus cynocephalus."

  1. Think it would be great if the species was still alive.
