Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Thylacine officially becameextinct on September 7, 1936, when the last know Thylacine died in the Hobart Zoo. This is largely dueto human hunting-- they wereperceived as both a threat and apest. Competition for food andshelter with the Dingo also mayhave contributed to the Thylacine'sextinction. There is controversy about the impact humans had on their extinction. The Thylacine, also known asthe Tasmanian Tiger or TasmanianWolf, was a large, carnivorousmarsupial, related to the modernTasmanian Devil. It was the onlymember of the Thylacinidae familythat survived into modern times. Missing: Thylacine The Thylacine lived in Australia, New Guinea, and, most recently, inTasmania. In Tasmania,it typically lived in the northand east coast and themidland plains. However, ithas not been seen for over seventy years. Because the Thylacinerecently became extinctand there are several goodpreserved specimens, thereis the possibility of geneticcloning/ the resurrection ofthe species. Also, somepeople believe there are stillwild Thylacine that the general public is unaware of. When the Thylacine became extinct, animals such as the Dingo and the Tasmanian Devilhad less competition, and, as a result, they became more populous, taking over the Thylacine's role.
