Description
The Thylacine, or Tasmanian Tiger, has become a heartbreaking symbol of animal extinction in Australia. Once hunted as a pest, this carnivorous marsupial vanished from the wild in the early 20th century, before the last known survivor died in Hobart Zoo in 1936. With one of the finest collections of Thylacine specimens in the world, the Museum is one of few places on the planet where visitors can make their own Tiger sighting.
