WOW....if this is true its a really exciting moment for the species.

Hopefully they will be protected.

"We've done it." LOL Done what?

I heard this afternoon that the Museum (probably Mooney) has said they regard the animals in the photos as Pademelon wallabies.

Yet another "I've got a photo that's definite proof but I'm not showing you"...I was over that attitude about 25 years ago.

Would have to agree, sums the whole thing up really.

I've got a photo of an Empty Beer bottle, but it doesn't have stripes. So might not post it on here.

Man remains "absolutely convinced" he has evidence of a family of Thylacines. He releases the photos tomorrow.

Thanks for the link, mate. But oh God; what a let-down.
This guy's mind is so contorted by confirmation bias that, if he snapped a photo of a bowerbird he'd somehow explain it away as a thylacine!
Pathetic, really.
I have to respect people who put time and effort and resources into searching for cryptids or rare creatures but they need to maintain a healthy skepticism.
This chap is just explaining everything away as "thylacine"...despite the fact that he has just photographed a pademelon's bum!

And filled his video with advertising to pay for it...

Yawn.

I find when you have to do too much explaining it means it's not a clear cut thing. All these pictures are not clear at all. Why was the camera put behind bushes to start with? If the pictures showed with no doubt at all that they were infact a family of Thylacines then he would not have to explain for most of his video what they were. I know he's out there like he said he would but in this case Neil I don't think you have captured thylacines. Keep trying mate.

I have to admit I got a little excited when I saw the announcement video but I am genuinely disappointed now. The fellow claimed that the "baby Thylacine" was not ambiguous. I was expecting something outstanding. What a let down.

David, I too was a little excited about the proposed pics, But alas deflated again.

I cannot believe the person could state they evidence was definitive. Far from it - even to a lay person. But thanks for posting.

Did you have any movement re your stones, etc you left as gifts? I know this is off topic, just interested.

Thanks Rowbe.. no movement in the stones. I've camped a few times in the South East Forests National Park since and a few trips into the Tinderries behind Michelago but nothing to report. I've been having a break from research recently but may do a few nights before it gets too cold. A break is good every so often (rad)

Thanks, David.

Yes, a break is always good. Be interesting to hear anything re stones in the future, especially if any specific type/ colour taken. Trying a few things myself.

Theres Thylacines on the mainland, theres a family of them at the bottom of a wheat paddock on a farm near Ouyen Victoria that backs onto the Murray Sunset National Park.
Authorities know about them, Uni has done studies, they keep it very quiet.

How old would this be? I don't doubt this for a second as i have always heard of a couple of known Thylacine populations on the mainland, one south of Sydney and another one in Victoria but i never got the confirmation wherebout that was if that was the Wilson Prom or somewhere else...

Ive only heard it through word of mouth, from my boss at work whos mate owns the wheat farm (he helps him out during the wheat harvest driving chaser bins on his days off), Ouyens Nth Vic/SA border region, Semi Arid Mallee scrub country which is why I was surprised to hear there was a population up in this region.
He said they have been asked to be quiet about it, wouldn't say exactly where it was other than Ouyen region backing onto the Murray Sunset National park, said the population has always been there and they come in from the park to drink at the back dam, the locals have long known about them but Uni has only been up there in recent years.

There also a Uni doing studies on a family of them up North in the gulf of Carpentaria region again tropical country, not a place I would have thought would be ideal but I guess they are wherever they are and we just associate them with Tasmania because we didn't know any different before.

Thanks, i'm not surprised by any of this. There has been sightings at almost any place in any type of habitat... as long as there are macropods as their primary food intake.
The gulf of Carpentaria is where there have been most nthern qld sightings in the last 10-15 years.. I hope they don't interfere much with their studies, these animals have been here long before Europeans arrived.

Interesting ay, I wonder if their diets and thus potential range might now be extended due to introduced species like Rabbits, Mice, Rats etc that are common in the Wheat belt?
Probably easy pickings compared to Roo's.

It probably does. Some sightings have them stalking rabbits. Pigs and deer could also be a source of food. Even feral cats could be but wouldn't be easy to get.

This would be great news if it were true. My personal belief is that in a country as big and diverse as Australia it would be inconceivable to think that pockets of thylacines have not managed to survive not only in Tasmania but the mainland as well. (detective)

But I can't help my cynical instincts kicking in. Has anybody given any thought as to why we haven't been able to positively prove the existence of these esoteric creatures i.e. Bigfoot, Yowies, Dogman and could we now add Thylacines to the list the only positive here is that the last mentioned actually existed?

As my signature says in this time of universal deceit well we are being deceived it is getting to the stage everything is not what it appears to be.
We see these creatures but we cannot pin them down no problems with all the other known creatures on Earth.
The only way of proof is the capture of a physical specimen but considering the facts, I do believe they exist proving it without endangering the animal is going to be the task.
