Tasmanian Tiger Vintage Postage Stamp
Photograph - Photographic Print
Detail of a vintage Australian postage stamp depicting the Tasmanian Tiger. Also known as the Tasmanian Wolf, this native of Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea finally became extinct in the mid 20th century. Like an unlikely combination of tiger, wolf and kangaroo, the Thylacine (its scientific name) was actually a carnivorous marsupial! What's more, according to wikipedia, "the thylacine was one of only two marsupials to have a pouch in both sexes (the other being the water opossum). The male thylacine had a pouch that acted as a protective sheath, covering the external reproductive organs while he ran through thick brush" - Ouch! (with no pouch).
