“Possible sightings of a Tasmanian tiger in northern Queensland has prompted scientists to undertake a search for the species thought to have died out more than 80 years ago. The last thylacine (know as Benjamin) is thought to have died in Hobart zoo in 1936, and it is widely believed to have become extinct on mainland Australia at least 2,000 years ago.
Recent sightings of large dog like animals that are not dingoes or foxes may suggest that thylacines are still alive. Many in Tasmania believe that the thylacine exist out in the deep bush, where no one ventures.
