Best Answer

No. The extinct Tasmanian tiger, more correctly known as the Thylacine, was not megafauna. Megafauna is defined as mammals weighing at least 45 kg or 100 pounds. Adults Tasmanian tigers weighed 15-30 kilograms, or 33 to 66 lb. They are usually also those animals which died off over 10000 years ago - and the Tasmanian tiger has only become extinct in the last 100 years.
