Tasmanian Tiger Facts

The Thylacine, who was more commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger, Tasmanian Wolf or Tassie Tiger, joined the recently extinct animal list less than 100 years ago. When this former marsupial was living, it roamed Australia's mainland where it is believed to have fallen victim to hunters and wild dingoes. The Tasmanian Tiger was then confined to the island off Australia's coast, called Tasmania. Habitat destruction and European bounty hunters are thought to be the main reasons why the population declined so drastically and what eventually caused extinction of the species altogether. In the kid-friendly format below, you'll read facts and information about their diet, appearance, habitat and much more.
