i did a lecture on the T. tiger and all your marsupials while doing my master's degree in biology. i hope they are still around. You would have to have a small population to keep the species going though. i can't remember the life span of the T. tiger but its shorter than wolves i believe, so they may only live 10-15 years in the wild. need a small population to keep that going. so the odds are low. for those who are not familiar with Australian mammals, they are all marsupials except the dingo and any other crap Europeans brought over: rabbits, foxes, cats, etc. mick can make sure I'm right on that?
Well aint you full of surprises! Yer our Marsupials are amazing, we have killed off more of them than I can count. Farming, introduced predators etc.
I think they are all Ms as you have said. Pouches etc. They are amazing, as you know, can turn their reproductive systems on and off according to the seasons. Its interesting from a masters point of view this pouch thing. To me this evolved to make em mobile, a lesser risk of predators, none of this nest crap, danger comes, the family is off, lock stock and barrell.
Where I live, one in three backyards will have a fox in it. Theres untold millions of em, most no bigger than a cat. People might see one a week if they get up early. So who knows whats sneaking around out there. Some Foxes with mange could be mistaken for a TT IMO.
