"In 2014, I met Sudan. The last male, northern white rhino in the world. Just four years later, Sudan died. Leaving two, both female, northern white rhinos alive. The species are effectively extinct. And they're not the only ones. We're losing biodiversity at an unprecedented scale. We're in the middle of what is termed the 6th mass extinction, and biodiversity crisis. And we don't even have the scientific and technological solution to keep up knowing what we're losing and how fast. The international unit for conservation of nature, red list is the official international organization that keeps track of the biodiversity of the world and of the 130,000 species that they track out of the millions that are out there. Majority have their conservation status as data deficient or their population trend as unknown. And these are iconic species like killer whale. And polar bears, we don't know how well they're doing. We can't make policy decisions. We can't put the right resources to protect them. How many African elephants are there? How fast are they lost to poaching? How far do the whales go? And how many juvenile turtles survive to adulthood, we don't know. And these data are critical to conservation decisions. So how do we get those data? They're not enough scientists to track every animal everywhere all over the world and not enough, colors and satellite tags to track them besides to put a satellite tag or a color on an animal you have to actually capture them. Tranquilize them have a vet present to monitor the vital signs of that animal, and even if everything goes right, the color can get snagged on a branch or the satellite tag can get infected. So this can be dangerous to the animals. Today, images are the most abundant, readily available source of information about anything from what.

"Foil to bugs. Bunny house doesn't look like a real tasmanian devil but he spins around like a tornado leaving chaos in his wake and he speaks incomprehensively including i can picture a tasmanian devil on the calf of a man wearing cargo shorts. Like i feel like you would see this fairly often today. Becky dry stat is a character designer in animation. And she was one of my best friends when we worked together as teens at busch gardens. I love i. Love bugs bunny. I've never liked the tasmanian devil. There's something about the tasmanian devil. I just don't. I do not like becky and i were in total agreement on this. I liked looney tunes to but to me has felt like the me of a bad tattoo. Corny kind of corporate and also aesthetically. Unappealing he's just kind of brown. So i've always wondered why. Why were there so many tattoos of this one specific second tier looney toon and yes there really were so many of them and not just at busch gardens in virginia. Did you have the tasr on the wall. Oh god yes. Media is a tattoo artist painter and graphic designer who started tattooing in the early ninety s. Today she specializes in these incredibly beautiful intricate tattoos cover-ups but she cut her teeth. Doing the kind of ready made tattoos. You see on the wall of a tattoo parlor. These tattoos on the wall are known as tattoo flash and by the nineteen ninety s. The tasmanian devil was tattoo flash staple. I've had one day. Where i did five tasmanian devils. I was working on one into my heels. Like dude that's awesome. I'll get it to and then two other guys coming in to get matching tattoos buddies like. Yeah we want that one. I'm like seriously five in one day one. After another julia moon is another tattoo artist. Who cut a lot of tasks tattoos in the nineties. While working in boston we'll pass was popular but he was fairly boring in terms of color. And i just thought putting him at different costumes would be really funny sue. Julie drew her own sheets of tasr. Flash softly rendered colored. Pencil tasr variations. There's christmas task with the santa sack. Full of guts. A bright pink. Tasr cupid a warlock tasr fourth of july tasr and another local variety tasr saint patrick's day party animal. But unlike other cartoon characters like bugs. Bunny betty boop or woody woodpecker tasr was not always tattoo icon. It took decades for him to get there. He was first introduced in cartoon. Called devil may hare in nineteen fifty four. He's fully formed here spinning around like a tornado running down trees and boulders in his path with his trademark garbled speech. He's trying to eat bugs. Bunny really wasn't any groundswell popularity for the character. Just another crazy adversary of bugs. Bunny really jerry. Beck is an animation historian and the author of multiple books on the history of animation including looney tunes character only appeared in like five cartoons. These cartoons were originally shown before feature films and movie theaters. But the studio heads were super keen on task so he never became a regular in some ways. I'd almost say the characterised forgotten during the nineteen sixties for the most part but task a second life when those theatrical real started to air on tv in the seventies and eighties. I think the ensuing decades the reruns of these cartoons people think characters. They're more than the is. The popularity of the character began to snowball and warner brothers began to notice in the eighties. They begin heavily marketing looney tunes characters. In a way they had before by nine hundred ninety one they had their own shops in malls found out as meaning devil. Merchandise really really selling taxes on t shirts mugs and baseball cards and that ability. He has to wear different costumes for different occasions. And circumstances made him a merchandisers dream. He appears as an athlete in hip hop get up and on so much saint patrick's day swag by nineteen ninety one. He has his own animated. Sitcom tasmania featuring task is the brother of tasmanian devil family before tasmania ran for four seasons and tasr continued to pop up another properties like space jam. A few years later the character is toned down bit from his earliest incarnations. he's not just bugs bunny's enemy he's goo fear less scary but he's still all id uncontrollable destructive. He does what he wants. A wild child so tasr was in the air but just because something is popular doesn't mean it's going to be a hot tattooed necessarily so why did people want tasr inked on their skin. I think it has something to do with ties. Being a wild child rob brooker was one and he dreamed of getting a tasmanian devil tattoo since he was a teenager. The tasmania w's like the wildest lead to digest. My head was turned eighteen. I'm going to get to ashby adele giant guiding and zero weapon experience. It's going to be awesome. Rob joined the national guard as a combat engineer. Right out of high school just a few months before nine. Eleven in two thousand and four. His unit was activated to go to iraq and he was stationed at fort dix new jersey waiting to deploy they were doing field training getting dropped in the woods for a week at a time and basically just having to survive one time a few guys in his unit said they were sick so they got to hang back from outdoor survival training. These snuck off base win nightclub and as they were coming home. The driver and the passenger got in a serious argument. The argument was so bad that the passenger stuck a knife into the driver's stomach. And i mean it was terrible. It was a huge mess in response. The military brass locked down the whole unit. Twenty first birthday locked in the barracks not enjoying life a couple days before their deployment. Still in lockdown robin. Some other guys felt so cooped up. They had to get out blow off some steam. Get up to some mischief. They snuck out one night found a cab and told the driver to take them to the nearest tattoo parlor house. Like this is it. This is my opportunity to get my tasmanian devil holding an m16. At first the guy. He didn't have any tasmanian devils on his wall so he. He told me he wasn't going to be able to do it but after begging him for a while he came back he drew something. Real quick drew it up. And i'll take his new tattoo accompanied him to kuwait and then to iraq. It wasn't a great time. He remember standing in a shipping container. That had been converted into a latrine looking at his tattoo. And thinking about how he got. It was kind of like an anchor to him connecting him to his past and to his potential future. I'll remember this forever. You know. I'm going through this now. I will not be enlist. And i'll have the story to look back and laughable after. He finished his time in the army. He moved around for a while and eventually landed back in richmond. Virginia he has a wife and a kid and a mortgage payment now. His dad tattoo is a bit faded to all that sun in the middle east. Probably didn't help but still loves it and never had any regrets. I was there. I don't have any regrets now. Do you still identify with like tasr as a character. No i'm older now. You know.

But in real life these marsupials have had a hard go they still number around the island of tasmania but for three thousand years. They have been extinct on the australian mainland. Now they're getting a warm welcome back. Mena jones is an ecologist at the university of tasmania. She studied the animal for thirty years. And she's an adviser to a group that released eleven devils into a wildlife park in new south wales matt. Galloway spoke to her in october. Here's their conversation. I think for a lot of us. Really the only impression that we have of the tasmanian devil is what we just heard from bugs. Bunny there. how does the real tasmanian devil compare to the cartoon version. Well i think it's a quite a funny story really because the people who came up with the typhoon devil had apparently never been has never seen it has many devil in the flesh but there are certain key aspects about tents. Which kinda get it right. You know devils a full of character their belligerent towards each other. They're very very food driven. They'll gorge themselves to their stomachs. Just delighted their screams growls and screens or enough to rice. The devil but the flip side of that is the devils There are predator and like most predators. They really smart animals. They're very wary of people so they quite shot then not aggressive towards people at all in fact as a researcher working on these animals in the field i can call me a devil whisper but i can just pick him up and devils that i worked on for berin pie lives. I could just take out of the second. Sit in my lap. And i would take the hit on the my arms. You know to get out of the sun. If i had someone with me had met before that could feel tints up a bit while they listened to the voice since. I don't know that person. So you know the they both full of character full of belligerents. Great michael is but they're also really not animals. Do they spin around. I mean in the cartoon they're like whipping around and they buzzed through trees and underground they do they do. They actually spin around. I have had a dribble spin around. It was just before the nineteen now headed biggest. Devil that i've ever captured. He was fourteen kilograms. And we're not finished handling most sitting on the ground with my leg. Seven from you know a big quite relaxed. I'll listen guy that he was fully fooling himself just prior to the mating season but embraced away and they stopped it out for maters away and he actually spun out and he charged me became to skidding halt and later away and just sort of huffed and grump to that around again and took off the decide but that probably go very often. You mentioned the sound of the tasmanian devil again. I mean we have the idea of what it sounds like in the cartoon. This kind of spitting roaring wild beast. This is what to real tasmanian devils. John mike kind of devilish. If i do say so myself why have they had such a hard go on the mainland. As i mentioned they've been extinct there for three thousand years not more or less why i went extinct. I mean being three thousand views drawing climate and they range had been pretty much. All of the australian mainland perhaps a desert and they contracted down to a very small area in the more temperate part of southeastern australia round about that time the human population increased with. You told us this is the aboriginal population which would have increased potentially competition for pry and potentially also direct professional the devil and also. The dingo arrived in australia. The dingo it was a domestic dog at timing on fishing from indonesia and that spread very rapidly. Land the synergy of those three things. The devil the mike it and the solid saint also went extinct and we can pick up a genetic signature intense mania of a near extinction event of both devils and policies fan time and all we hadn't has made it was the climate event we didn't have the increase in average for population and we didn't get inga's so it does indicate the you know the comet probably fit the scene and the other two factors bumped it off now that we know roughly why that went extinct. There's no reason why we can't put them back. What's the benefit. just finally putting them back there. Well the devil predator originally the two top predators in australia with a solid thing which is not not really actually as big as if it's not really a wolf it's more of a solid looking coyote And the devil which is a must be hiding bit. It's not very big. They're only between sort of sympathy twelve kilograms. But they're the top terrestrial predator in australian ak- systems so with the extinction of those two on the mainland and the arrival of the bingo. We now have dingoes on the mainland fulfill that top predator role but dingoes con live everywhere they kind of bend from shape country because the pretty destructive on shape so there are many places that now lack atop terrestrial mammalian predator and top predators are pretty good persecuting invasive predators like red foxes in australia and feral cats so this then means that the devil functions as the top predator in protecting smaller by diversity which would be impacted by predation from feral cats so it helps keep it helps keep things back in check in some ways it does. Yep do they call you. The devil whisper have been called dead. It's a it's a good thing to have a business card. I really appreciate you telling us more about an animal. That as i say. We know only from reputation reputation from a cartoon. Perhaps it's not something that you want to build Your knowledge on thank you very much. Thank you bye bye. Mena jones is an ecologist at the university of tasmania matt. Galloway spoke to her in october. And since that conversation more good news for the real life tasr in late may seven. Babies were born to some of the devils that mena jones helped reintroduced to the mainland the first newborns in the wild in three thousand years ecologists said.

The little penguin which is again the smallest penguin species is thirteen inches tall but has an overall length of about seventeen inches. Which means that aside from being the easy meal of choice per hungry tasmanian devils. They also have a slouching problem.

The family of 26 year old Alan Peon says he is now conscious and breathing action force. Nestor Ma. Today journalist Sarah Varney revisits the story to examine how a family is forever changed by a case like this. Sarah is a health policy correspondent for Kaiser Health News, and she joins us now welcome. Oh, thanks for having me. Let's first talk about the PM family. There's Harold P. And he's a Haitian immigrant, an internal medicine physician in Texas. His wife, Paloma is an immigrant from Mexico and their three sons are Christian Allen and Dominic. What did you learn about the parents? Initial ideas when they immigrated here about American life? So Harold Pan. He was born in Haiti to a quite wealthy family. You know, his father went from being a judge in Haiti to getting a job working the elevator up Rockefeller Center in New York City. His wife joined him a few years later. And then eventually, Harold and all of his brothers and sisters moved to New York. In heralds view, racism did not exist. It wasn't a part of his childhood. After Paloma. She had grown up in Mexico near Vera Cruz and did not experience racism per se, she says. But both of them had this earnest belief in the American ideals of meritocracy that if you come to the United States, and you work hard that there will be nothing in your way to succeed. European centers on the couple's son, Allen, and what happened to him five years ago. He's bipolar and would sometimes have delusions. During one hospital stay in Houston, His delusions escalated. Take us from there. Yeah, So Alan had just transferred to a school in Houston, and he was starting to feel agitated. He had been hospitalized a number of years before for what they believed was a bipolar disorder. But he had never had an official diagnosis. So he started feeling agitated. He started having these delusions, and he knew enough to drive himself to the hospital in Houston. He was driving kind of Out of control. He crashed his car when he got the hospital parking lot. They did admit him. They never actually gave him a psychological evaluation. They never prescribed him any kind of anti psychotic medication. The next morning, When Harold and Paloma arrived at the hospital, they wanted to get him some treatment. So they were. They left the hospital for about a half an hour to go back to the hotel room and regroup. And during that time, Alan Became delusional again and he wandered into the hallway and the nurses called Crisis Code and these two off duty police officers from the Houston police Department responded. They went into the room closed the door behind them. There were no doctors, no nurses, no hospital staff with them except for these police officers and the police officer said in their statements that Allen became hostile that he was acting like a Tasmanian devil. They tased him. And when they say that when they're tasing didn't work. One of the police officers took out his gun and shot Alan through the chest, narrowly missing his heart. Um, this nearly killed him. His parents returned back to the hospital to find that Allen was in IC ICU and that he had been shot and they had a very difficult time over the next couple days. Getting an answer as to what had happened. This was huge news. When it happened. It made national headlines. Alan faced charges after the shooting. How and why did this happen? He did face charges. I mean, they charged him everything from reckless driving, coming into the parking lot to assaulting a police officer. Here we are. Six years later, he's still involved in a lawsuit against the hospital and the hospitals. Continues to maintain that if an episode like this happen again, they would do the exact same thing. So this is, of course, Allen's and the whole family's great frustration is that it just stunned them and force them to confront what they believed was the racist motivation behind the shooting itself. And just the treatment of the family. You know, as you mentioned Harold himself as a physician. Two of the three brothers, Dominic and Christian are either in medical school or have just graduated from medical school. They have an uncle who is a prominent pulmonologist, also in the McAllen area. So these are people who are used to being respected in hospitals, and they found themselves just thrown into this alternate reality in which nobody could give them a straight answer, and nobody could help them understand what had happened in that room. This is where you pick up the story because you write that the shot fired into Allen's chest would extinguish the pans family's belief that diligent high achievers could outwit the racism that shadows the American promise. Equality would not be a choice left up to the trio of ambitious boys. They've gone on from this point to Somewhat reluctant activists. Can you tell us more about that? Yeah, Obviously, Paloma and Harold individually have their own notions of what it meant to be here in the United States and to be putting their roots down here and each of the boys So each of the men the young men had their own reactions to this for Christian who is the oldest pay on and son? His reaction was immediate that we should not be quiet about this that we should use what happened to Alan to advocate for change in the health care system. Allen was much more reluctant about this. He struggles with mental illness, but he was showing up going on Dr Oz or having to go do another speech at another medical school. And while he wants to do those things he also wants to and sometimes just retreat inside himself. You live his life away from The responsibility that he survived. So Alan feels that he has this burden because he survived. And so many other black men have not survived their encounters with police that he has to, in a sense, kind of make good on this survival and Christian talks about how he doesn't want Alan to feel like a prop. He doesn't want other people to think he's using Allen as a prop. You know, there's no doubt that he is earnest and wants to make these changes in the health care system and more broadly in our society, But he's conflicted about what he should do with Allen's. Story since it didn't actually happened to him per se. And he's still battling that still to this day, you know, One of the things I write about in the piece is a few months after the shooting. Allen was back in McAllen, Texas, and Christian called the whole family up to New York City for this rise up October march against police brutality, really the first time that the family had come together and very publicly joined in with all these other families that have been touched by police brutality. Each of them really had their own experience with it. You know for Christian. He was really clear that he wanted to be there. But then, when he heard some of the described this in the piece that there's a chant breaks out of F the police and Christian feels that this isn't the tone. We should be setting. So he wades into the crowd and he gets into this argument with a white family. That's their whose child had actually been shot in the head by the police. And he's begging them to please let's change the chant and Christian in his own mind is thinking at the time as his 2015..

Tasmanian devils are found on the island of tasmania but that wasn't always the case. Thousands of years ago these small marsupials also thrived on the australian mainland.

This is a big deal. And rachel is going to tell us why. She's a research fellow at the university of southampton in the uk. Rachel how significant is this.

Free places that we can have healthy wild populations of the species. Now i know you were not involved in this particular conservation project. But i know you've done extensive research on facial cancers that have plagued tasmanian devils. Tasmania is one of the reasons why it's taken so long for them to be able to reproduce again on mainland australia paul partially these two contagious cancers that circulate in the species on the island of tasmania have essentially produced the population boy about eighty percent. So they've really throw a spanner in the works for the survival of the species and the priority has really been trying to keep small healthy populations going but now we're starting to see emerge rebounding in the population size on the island. So now he's a really good time to start moving them back to the mainland as it's a new disease free population and they've got plenty of space wants to be able to grow and expand again. You've said that this facial cancer. These cancers have wiped out eighty percent of the population of tasmanian devils on the island of tasmania.

Tasmanian Devils May Overcome Transmissible Cancer That Nearly Wiped Them Out
"You might have heard of the plight of the tasmanian devil. These carnivorous marsupials have been afflicted with a transmissible facial tumor a cancer that jumps from one devil to another when they bite each other in the face not as uncommon as you might think and as a result their populations have gone into steep decline despite these extreme population losses. The devils have been holding on and may even be turning a corner andrew store for and colleagues wrote about this potential turnaround in this week science. Hi andrew hi. Let's start with the downfall of the devils. This facial tumor disease. Dft when did arise and what has been. It's trend in it. Spread among the tasmanian devils. The devil facial tumor disease according to our new study originated. Probably in the late. Nineteen eighty s. It was actually discovered in the mid nineteen ninety s in far northeastern. Tasmania where people started discovering devils with large facial lesions that seem to grow. Initially that wasn't much of a concern because they've seen these types of lesions new places back since the nineteen seventies however when animals started dying in large numbers. People really started paying attention that this was some sort of transmissible disease shortly thereafter. A genetic study was done that showed that these lesions were actually a clone oil transmissible cancer. They were genetically close to identical so since its discovery the disease has actually swept across tasmania and sort of an east to west us. Fred and is now just reached. Some of the last uninfected populations on the west coast has media. Cancer is different from pathogens like bacteria or viruses. How's that affected our ability to understand the transmission of this disease in tasmanian devil. One of the big challenges has been its large genome size so studying. The genome of a virus is fairly straightforward because viruses like sars he'll be to only about eighteen to twenty eight thousand base pairs long. However the tasmanian devil genome is three point two billion bases about the size of the human genome so trying to track. The spread of the disease is much more challenging. In terms of computational power and genomic sequencing methods which weren't really available at the scale they are now when the disease was discovered. So in the study that we're talking about today. You apply to technique that has mainly in the past been used for viruses. What did you have to do differently to get this to work for transmissible cancer. We did complete genome sequencing of fifty one tumors than that being in our final analysis finding parts of the genome that are measurably evolving that is evolving at a regular rate or what we would call them. Killer clock is pretty challenging and in the end we screened about eleven thousand genes which took several months on the computer and found twenty that were measurably evolving clock like fashion. And the reason you want to do that is then you can look at how these or changing over time as the disease has spread and this allows you to estimate epidemiological parameters like the transmission rate and the proportion of the population. That gets infected overtime. So this is how you figured out that it came out in the eighties right. The disease likely originated in the eighties which is consistent with its discovery in the bid nineties because when a disease like this i started taking off. In a wildlife population it might be at fairly low prevalence and so people don't really notice it until it really takes off and our epidemiological parameter which is called our savvy which is equivalent to the transmission rate started to peak in our analysis just before the discovery which makes sense because the disease was rapidly increasing or exponentially increasing in the population. Let's talk a little bit about that transmission rate. That's something that you know using this analysis you're able to show it changed over time. Can you describe that trajectory we identify tumor lineages and in wanted around the mid nineteen ninety s in the other it peaked around two thousand and the really encouraging results of the study showed that in both major tumor lineages that seemed to be across. Tasmania now that the transmission rate declined to just about one at present and this indicates that the disease has reached some sort of stable state that is for every devil that's infected only one additional devil is infected and thus the main conclusion of the paper which is the disease is transitioning from an epidemic state in which it's exponentially moving across populations to an end state where it's just kind of at replacement is the kind of analysis you did hear able to tell you what has changed. Is something different about the tumor. Cells are the devils different. What's going on. We did find some mutations that seem to explain variation in transmission rates among the different tumor lineages and these are related to other types of cancer however these are candidates for downstream discovery at this point so they serve as good hypotheses for future research. And what's different about the devils. We have some other studies that show that also the devils seemed to be evolving in response to cancer. We see changes in the devil genome. That are also seem to be associated with possibly disease resistance. We've also seen spontaneous tumor regression in an increasing number of devils wild populations and we show that that might be related to regulatory changes in the in the devil so perhaps some jeans are up or down regulated in response to the tumor and we also found a mutation in the tumor. That seems to cause the tumor to shrink so a mutation actually when turning on a gene and this gene is implicated in human prostate and colon. Cancer the tumor growth actually slows in laboratory studies when we transact wild type tumors. Don't have this gene with the. Does this suggest that the disease will go away or that. It will coexist peacefully with tasmanian. Devils people really thought that tasmanian devils or on their way to extinction. I think this provides us cautious optimism about the future of the tasmanian devil. This transmissible cancer which is nearly one hundred percent lethal has caused a dramatic decline of this species of process. Entire range has me so they are certainly not out of the woods yet. However because this disease is socially transmitted early models predicted disease extinction because even if you have low densities of individuals the disease can still be transmitted because devils congregate and bite one another. Which is the way. The disease is transmitted for purposes of mayday or scavenging food however a growing number of studies from our group has shown through ecological modeling for example devils are predicted to persist on most scenarios. Some of those involve lower population densities than where they were initially but yet the devils will persist and in the subset of those cases. The tumor will also persist and we may see sort of endemic dynamics where there's populations like this study adds to the growing number of studies that the disease itself also seems to be evolving perhaps lower transmission rate because there may be evolutionary pressure on disease to be less lethal to the devils. Are people trying to figure out how to preserve the devils and will that strategy change with this understanding of the switch from epidemic too endemic. We certainly hope that our new study will help. Influence hearth rations strategy so when devil started declining there was captive breeding to maximize genetic variability in captive populations which are maintained in wildlife parks and some zoos and actually an island offshore from tasmania album. Riot island. where there's a free roaming population of not quite captive devils but devils were introduced there. These were referred to as captive insurance operations with the intent that if devils went extinct on the mainland they could be reintroduced or if devil population sizes or inbreeding reached really high levels. They could perhaps be introduced using a technique called genetic rescued increase genetic diversity in the wild populations

Is the Tasmanian Tiger Really Extinct?
"You've no doubt heard of the Tasmanian Devil or seen an animated version the whirling dervish in looney tunes cartoons. But what about the Tasmanian Tiger? It's actually not even a tiger at all instead a marsupial known as the Thilo seen and it's thought to have gone extinct almost one hundred years ago but did it really. While many experts believed the last known thylacine died at. Australia's Hobart Zoo in nineteen thirty. Six others ardently claimed that the animals still exists because they've spotted one or more in the wild. We spoke by email with Kathryn medlock. Honorary Curator of vertebrate zoology the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. She said the international Australian and state definition of an extinct species is that there has been no reliable evidence of the species for fifty years by this definition. They are officially extinct species although designated as officially extinct. It's difficult to prove that something is not there as opposed to proving it is. There are many cases of species being rediscovered. Many years after supposed- extinction we also spoke by email with Rick Schwartz an animal ambassador for California's San Diego Zoo. He explained that quote since the Nineteen Thirties. There have been a few claims Tasmanian. Tigers have been seen for brief moments in the wild however no substantial evidence has proven they exist at this time we also spoke by email with Neil waters of the thylacine awareness group of Australia. Who started disagrees a quote? Do I think the animals extinct? No because I've seen too and been coughed slash barked at by one in South Australia. In two thousand eighteen. There have been more than seven thousand documented sightings of Silas scenes or animals that appear to be Thilo scenes but the majority of those sightings on Mainland Australia. According to the scientific formula applied to mammals though it is extinct and has been since nineteen thirty six for fifty years. The animal was considered rare and endangered. This fact inconveniently keeps the animal as a recent extinction rather than an ancient one. We should lose hope over and forget about. Let's step back a bit. What exactly is Tasmanian. Tiger? Schwartz explained that it's not a big cat at all. He said the name. Tiger most likely was given to the animal by the European settlers due to the light stripes that went from the spine down each side on the hind end of the animal. Most people agree that the Tasmanian Tiger looks like a medium sized short haired dog with subtle stripes on hindquarters and the base of its tail. Tail was thick and muscular at the base. More like a kangaroo's tail than a dog's tail colorations were described as light brown and Yellow Brown with Darker Brown stripes. These animals weighed about forty five to seventy pounds. That's twenty to thirty kilos with a body length of forty to fifty inches or one hundred to one hundred and twenty five centimeters with that tail. Adding another twenty to twenty five inches or fifty to sixty centimeters most stood about two feet tall or two thirds of a meter at the shoulder. Schwartz said in our modern times we usually think of marsupials and Kangaroos however the Tasmanian Tiger had a number of unique characteristics being dog like medium sized carnivore. That's also Marsupial it. Size and features were more similar to that of a small wolf or large Fox. Combine that with the striped pattern on the hind end and thick muscular tail.
