Can you spot a Tasmanian TIGER? Why THIS photo has divided the internet


The Tasmanian Tiger, differently known as the thylacine, used to be native to Australia but has been officially out since 1986.

However, that doesn’t stop people thinking they’ve spotted one.

The latest info was sparked by footage captured by a trail camera on the outskirts of Perth.

It demonstrates a creature that looks like a dog or a fox – but many have claimed it looks disposed to a Tasmanian Tiger.

The thylacine looked like a dog, but with a long appendage and black stripes.

The animal in the recent photos could be of a sub species of thylacine go together to Neil Waters, founder of the Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia. 

“My call is there is more than one species of thylacine,” he told Daily Dispatch Australia. 

“Tasmanian Tigers in Tasmania were isolated so they all things considered had a narrower gene pool.

“With the mainland being bigger there is a lot more sphere for a sub species.

“I agree the head looks like a fox, but the rear end – I can’t find a fox online that looks appreciate that. 

“The tail is exceptionally long and even in thickness. It looks take pleasure in it is covered in fur. 

“It doesn’t look like a fox at the rear end.”

Accord to Mr Waters, Tasmanian Tiger sightings maintain been on the up around Perth, but as yet none have been confirmed. 

The thylacine was at one go common in Australia, but by the early 1900s it was rare to see in the wild.

The last remembered Tasmanian Tiger was housed in a zoo in Hobart, but it died in 1936.
