Thylacoleo carnifex - Marsupial Lion thread

Unread post by Shazzoir » Tue Jul 24, 2018 2:03 am

Since we don't have a specific forum for the Thylacoleo carnifex or Marsupial Lion, I figured it might be an idea to make one here.

There are a number of threads spread around AYR discussing this cryptid, so I'll link to those here so we have everything in one central location.

In the meantime, here's a show that discusses the beast a little if you're not familiar with Australia's possibly most fearsome marsupial cryptid.



1. Is this a pic of a marsupial lion? viewtopic.php?f=52&t=3313&hilit=Marsupial+lion

2. Composite image and story by Paul McLeod (thanks Paul) download/file.php?id=5876&mode=view

3. Mention of the Thylacoleo by Neil Frost viewtopic.php?f=45&t=3404&p=33017&hilit ... leo#p33017 in the thread 'Do you believe them to be marsupial or primate?'

4. Thylacoleo Roadkill? thread: viewtopic.php?f=52&t=3224&p=19070&hilit ... leo#p19070

5. Mentions of the Thylacoleo viewtopic.php?f=45&t=2616&p=14632&hilit ... leo#p14632

6. Very short one 'Queensland Tiger' comment thread viewtopic.php?f=45&t=646&p=5129&hilit=thylacoleo#p5129

7. Mention of fox paw in scat of supposed Thylacoleo viewtopic.php?f=45&t=248&p=2273&hilit=thylacoleo#p2273


Please, if you have any great links to stories about this beast, feel free to add them here.

Gary opit has shared a book from the early 1920’s , put in some pics so all can read, very cool, best part is the book was written before the so called extinction of the tassie tiger, I’ll find the pics

Excellent photos of the text, Hominidhunter, thank you! :)

I had read of the Thylacoleo up north, but nowhere else, and this book excerpt mentions that range, Tully, Atherton. Nice find, and thank you for sharing it.
