Thylacine - Not paleoart, but they are extinct now and I find it such a beautiful and haunting photo as we're looking directly into the eyes of a species of animal that no longer exists, thanks to us.

Thylacine - This photo was taken only a few years ago. They were marsupials, nocturnal, and a light brownish color with dark brownish red stripes. They had an over sized mouth with a huge span, larger than most mammals have and a fairly odd build. They have been officially extinct since 1936 due to over hunting, but there have been supposed sightings of them from time to time,

Perry Sumner, a biologist with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, said it's likely a red fox with a rare genetic condition known as Sampson, an abnormality in which the animal lacks a layer of fur called guard hair.

Last Tasmanian Tiger, Thylacine, 1933

It saddens me to know that man hunted these beautiful animals to extinction. Perhaps we'll find some alive, somewhere. Historical footage of the last Tasmanian Tiger known to be alive. It died in 1936 and none have been seen since.

COL Bailey makes some extraordinary claims. Not only does he firmly believe the supposedly extinct thylacine still lives in the Tasmanian wilderness, he claims to have seen one, as recently as 1995.
