Best Answer

When any given species has not been sighted for a certain number of years, it is declared extinct. There have been no confirmed sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger, more correctly known as Thylacine, since the last known specimen died in the Hobart Zoo in September 1936. Until there is a confirmed sighting, the Thylacine will continue to be regarded as extinct.

Why is Tasmanian Wolf endangered?

The Tasmanian tiger is not a tiger, but a carnivorous marsupial (dasyurid), more correctly known as the Thylacine. It was never endangered, as the various conservation status levels were not in force before it became extinct. It was moved to "extinct" status as a result of being hunted as a possible threat to livestock in Tasmania following European settlement. The last known Tasmanian Tiger died in the Hobart Zoo in 1936, and there have been no confirmed sightings since then.

It was hunted to extinction after a bounty was placed on it as a livestock killer.

What type of water does the Tasmanian wolf drink?

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 animal is now extinct, so it does not drink any water. Prior to its extinction, it drank the same water all wild animals drink, from creeks, rivers, lakes and other natural sources.

Why can't the Tasmanian Wolf open its mouth?

The Tasmanian wolf, more correctly known as the Thylacine (and sometimes the Tasmanian tiger), is believed to be extinct. This is the only reason it cannot open its mouth.
