The Thylacine: a Triumph of Hope over Experience?

Joe and Greg Booth and Adrian Richardson have been tracking thylacines for a long time.  They have recently released new footage of a sighting they made close to Maydena in Tasmania from November 2016.

While I would love the footage to be that of a thylacine, I fear that the jury is still out.

In the meantime, I got a whole lot nearer to a real thylacine, but sadly my one was dead and stuffed, and on display in the Galerie de paléontologie et d’anatomie compare, part of the French Muséum national d’histoire naturelle, situated in the Jardin des Plantes in Paris.

Today is the date of the 81st anniversary of the death of the last known living thylacine, in Beaumaris Zoo in Hobart.

81 years.  It is longer than the wait for the England Senior Football Team to achieve a major honour.  And yet still I wait.  Ever in hope.
