Australia Thylacine Stamp

Thylacine Stamps



The Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger was a marsupial carnivore native to Tasmania. The Thylacine was officially hunted to extinction in the wild in the early part of this century. The last known living specimen died in captivity in the Hobart zoo in 1936. Occasional sightings suggest that a few Thylacines may still exist in the wild.

See the Tasmanian Tiger and relatives section of my cryptozoology links page for more sites offering information about the Thylacine.
