It could be argued that the Tasmanian Wolf (more properly known as the Thylacine) has failed to adapt to its surroundings - it is now believed to be extinct.

The Thylacine had a number of adaptations which enabled it to survive effectively in its native habitat.

  • It was a carnivorous marsupial, and able to open its jaws as wide as a snake can, something no other mammal can do.
  • Although it moved on four legs, it had strong hind legs shaped a little like those of a kangaroo. This gave it extra speed and agility for hunting prey.
  • It had up to 16 black or brown stripes on its back, predominantly at the tail end, which offered good camouflage in the grasslands and bushland it inhabited.
  • The male had a pouch to protect his reproductive organs from the thick bushland through which he ran in search of prey.

The Tasmanian tiger, more correctly known as the Thylacine, did not live in the rainforest. The habitat of the thylacine was open bushland such as dry eucalypt forest or grasslands or sometimes the edge of open wetlands.

The correct name for the Tasmanian wolf is Thylacine.

Also known as the Tasmanian tiger (and not to be confused with the Tasmanian devil), this marsupial had several unique features which made it particularly suited to its environment.

  • It was a carnivorous marsupial, and able to open its jaws as wide as a snake can, something no other mammal can do.
  • Although it moved on four legs, it had strong hind legs shaped a little like those of a kangaroo. This gave it extra speed and agility for hunting prey.
  • It had up to 16 black or brown stripes on its back, predominantly at the tail end, which offered good camouflage in the grasslands and bushland it inhabited.
  • The male had a pouch to protect his reproductive organs from the thick bushland through which he ran in search of prey.

The Tasmanian Tiger, or Thylacine, is believed to be extinct, as there have been no sightings since the last one died in the Hobart Zoo in 1936.

However, the Thylacine had a number of interesting features.

  • It was a carnivorous marsupial, and able to open its jaws as wide as a snake can, something no other mammal can do.
  • Although it moved on four legs, it had strong hind legs shaped a little like those of a kangaroo. This gave it extra speed and agility for hunting prey.
  • It had up to 16 black or brown stripes on its back, predominantly at the tail end, which offered good camouflage in the grasslands and bushland it inhabited.
