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.
