What was a Tasmanian Tiger? The Tasmanian tiger (Thylacinus cynocephalus) had many names. The Tasmanian Wolf and also the Thylacine. It had a head like a dog, but a long, low body with stripes on its hindquarters like a Tiger. It even had a long, thick tail like a kangaroo, and was about the size of a large Labrador retriever. What did the Tasmanian Tiger eat? The Tasmanian Tiger ate small prey like possums and bandicoots. Some believed that it killed large livestock and a massive witch hunt led to their demise. However recent analysis of the musculoskeletal configuration of its jaw showed it couldn’t regularly withstand the massive pressure of killing large animals.

What happened to the Tasmanian Tiger? TheTasmanian tigers were hunted and killed by humans and dingoes. Tasmania had few people and no dingoes, though, so it became a last refuge to the Tasmanian tiger and its close cousin, the Tasmanian devil. It was on the way out due to constant human population growth but when white settlers arrived things really started to kick off. Why did the Tasmanian Tiger go extinct? On 7 September 1936 only two months after the species was granted protected status, ‘Benjamin’, the last known thylacine, died from exposure at the Beaumaris Zoo in Hobart Whilst Benjamin died of exposure the rest of his species was killed by excessive hunting, combined with factors such as habitat destruction and introduced disease. Did humans kill all the Tasmanian Tiger?
