Thylacine | Tasmanian Tiger

Set of standing side elevation drawings of the Thylacine

The Thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus), now extinct, was one of the largest known carnivorous marsupials. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger or the Tasmanian Wolf for their canid-like traits and striped lower back. The species was native to Tasmania, New Guinea, and Australia, but the observations made of the animal were made when it was in captivity, and only limited, anecdotal evidence exists of the Thylacine’s behavior in the wild. The Thylacine had a stiff tail, abdominal pouch similar to a kangaroo’s, dark transverse stripes, and round erect ears covered in short fur. It preyed on kanagroos, wallabies and wombats, and birds and other small animals.

Collection of scaled drawings of Thylacine in various poses

Thylacines have a shoulder height of 20”-27” (51-69 cm), body length between 39”-51” (99-130 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 35-65 lb (16-29 kg). The tail of the Thylacine is 20”-26” (51-66 cm) in length. Thylacines have a typical lifespan of 5-7 years in the wild and up to 8-11 years in captivity.

Marsupials are mammals characterized by the pouch the mother has for raising and protecting her young. Marsupials are most commonly associated with Austrailia, where Kangaroos and Koalas are found, but marsupials, specifically the opposum, are also found in North, Central, and South America.
