Tasmanian tiger remains unearthed after 85 years

There are many species on this earth that have become extinct due to human activities. Even though they are extinct, they only leave the earth with some remnants to remember them. One such creature is the Tasmanian tiger. Human invasion has become the villain of their race. Tasmanian tigers became extinct when humans invaded Australia from Europe.

In the 1930s, the creatures that Europeans called the Tasmanian tiger and the Tasmanian wolf, which lived on the island of Tasmania in the southeast of Australia, were hunted on a large scale. The native names of this creature were Kanunna, Koorinna, etc. In 1936, the last Tasmanian tiger captured by Europeans died at the zoo. This species has not been found on the island of Tasmania since then. The skin and bones of the last Tasmanian tiger, housed in the Tasmanian Museum, were thought to have been lost.

Efforts to locate the remains were made by the Tasmanian Museum and the Art Gallery but were unsuccessful. Many researchers and museum curators have been working on this for years. But after 85 years, the remains of the Tasmanian tiger were found in a cupboard in the museum’s education department. The remains were discovered by one of the museum’s curators and researcher Robert Paddle, who studied the species’ extinction in 2000.
