In Search of Thylacine Replicas

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 2nd, 2008

Matthew Bille, author of Shadows of Existence and other books, approached me with a question over the weekend, which I have seriously pondered often: Where are the Thylacine replicas? Does no one produce affordable, hard-plastic, scale-model, museum-quality representations of the Thylacine (a.k.a. Tasmanian Tiger)?

Thylacine Videos

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 10th, 2007

In Australia, as it turns out, there are many borderline good videos that may show evidence of the survival of the thylacine. Are some of these not merely dingo? Do I see some striping on the rear quarters of these animals? Are any of these the “Patterson-Gimlin film” of a thylacine? You be the judge. […]
