Updated : July 15, 2013 by Jay to correct 1 animation view, to add a bark animation from images of the growl animation, to remove unnecessary files and configuration lines, to correct configuration mistakes done by the APE program concerning sounds, to make some minor adjustments to the animal info, and to make it like the Thylacine Balancing Act Fallen Tree as much as its most liked in-game foliage. Please note that the version at Taz's site is no longer the most current version, since she is deceased.

Updated : August 10, 2013 by Jay to make it like the Thylacine Family Rock and Thylacine Rock as much as its most liked in-game rock.

Description : Thylacinus cynocephalus, which is the only recent genus and species of the marsupial family Thylacinidae, was apparently found only on the island of Tasmania within historic times. Since the beginning of the European occupation, there have been many reports from the Australian mainland of sightings of animals bearing a close resemblance to the thylacine. However, none of these reports have been positively confirmed as of yet (Ride 1970; Heuvelmans 1958). During late Pleistocene and the early Holocene times, the genus is known to have been widespread across Australia and nearby New Guinea. The most recent subfossilized remains from the Australian mainland date back to just over 3,000 years before present. It is widely believed that the main reason for the disappearance of Thylacinus cynocephalus from mainland Australia is due to the introduction of the domestic dog by human immigrants from Asia. This introduction may have taken place as much as 10,000 years ago, or possibly earlier (Archer 1974a; Partridge 1967). These dogs formed feral populations which created ecological competition with the thylacine. Until the arrival of European settlers in the 18th century, thylacines in Tasmania were quite safe because the feral Australian dog (dingo) had never become established there.
