EUROPESE OMROEP | OPENN | NPO.DIGITAL | The Tasmanian tiger, a large striped carnivore, is believed to have gone extinct over 80 years ago — but newly released Australian government documents show sightings have been reported as recently as two months ago 👀 The Tasmanian tiger, or thylacine, pictured above in a museum in 2002, was native to Tasmania and the Australian mainland.
