Additional Information

Tyger, Tyger, burning bright in the forests of the night…’ Just what the famous poet, Blake, might have written about the demise of the Tasmanian tiger, we can never know. Strictly speaking, the Tasmanian tiger is not a tiger at all, but a thylacine and marsupial. This fabled creature was sadly hunted to extinction
