The Tasmanian Wolf is often called the Tasmanian Tiger. This large dog resembling marsupial may be extinct. Populations have occurred in Tasmania where between 1888 and 1908 government bounties were paid on the scalps of over 2,000 animals. Although later reports of tracks exist, the last documented siting was an individual shot in 1930. Usually referred to as a Tasmanian Tiger because of the black strips on its back. Although it can only be speculated, the diet consisted of wallaby and kangaroo. It usually had six to eight young in one litter. When settlers came to Tasmania it killed sheep causing its own extinction.
