Caption

Thylacine, Hobart Zoo, Tasmania. The Thylacine, or Tasmanian Wolf (Thylacinus cynocephalus) is an extinct animal that lived in Tasmania, Australia. The last individual, shown here in the photo, died as a zoo exhibit on 7th September 1936. Thylacines were predators and blamed by sheep farmers for attacking their flock. A bounty was paid for every specimen killed which,together with habitat destruction and competition with wild dogs, ensured the Thylacine was quickly wiped out in Tasmania.
