Last Thylacine

Last Thylacine

The last thylacine died in 1936, and, due to the fact that the zoo expected to find a replacement, they did not bother to keep records of the animal. In fact, its gender was only determined in 2011 by a team of researchers looking frame-by-frame at a video of it. When it was last captured on film it bit the cameraman in the butt.
