The thylacine


The thylacine
Although the thylacine is extinct, it is not like the dodo - there are quite a few thylacine specimens in museums around the world.
This specimen is a mounted skin - it has been preserved and stuffed by a taxidermist. Although this specimen gives us a good idea what the thylacine looked like, the Museum has other types of specimens as well. Bones, teeth and unmounted skins all tell us different things about the thylacine.
