The Tasmanian Tiger – Extinct, Episode 6

I Dont Own Any Material In This Clip Belongs To Respective Owners. Broadcast In 2001 By Channel 4 With Wall To Wall. This Final Episode Looks At The Tragic Extinction Of The Thylacine Or Tasmanian Tiger.

Is it? I don’t know. I would certainly like to think that it’s not and will readily admit to having a gut feeling that the critter’s still around in limited numbers. There is a lot of intriguing, yet fleeting, evidence of sorts that makes one think.

My opinions don’t mean anything in the real world, of course, but, it’s a good thought. I just like the little buggers.

Fortunately some serious folks are keeping an eye out for any new findings. Perhaps the fellows introducing themselves in the video shown below will make a breakthrough one day… let’s hope so.

Extinct or Extant? – Thylacine (Tasmanian tiger)

Zoologist Chris Coupland from the Thylacine Research Unit or T.R.U. talks about the possibility of the continued existence of the Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger


  1. Hi Iggy, many sightings on this one over the past 75 years or so, too many to be ignored. The Tasmanian wilderness is wild and dense, so it has to be ranked a strong possibility. Apparently some German tourist took a snap of it in 2005, but I don’t know if this has ever been confirmed.

      Hey, thanks Anthony. Yeah, man, 400 sightings the fella says. That’s a lot for such a small area. I do remember that picture… looked interesting as I recall… don’t remember any confirmation, though. The TRU website is pretty good and definitely worth a look see if you haven’t yet. Their approach is good and I wish them good hunting. There are some interesting films and photos out there, that’s for sure. Peace.
