I think you'd have a better chance of catching a Yowie than a Thyalicine on the main land
Quake42 said:Actually a lot of the most promising sightings have come from the mainland. I think there is a suggestion that thylacines may have been released in Wilson's Promontory in Victoria in the late 19th century... although of course how they might have survived last year's bush fires there is another matter.

Case in point the 6 foot long cat shot in Australia that turned out to be a feral. None of the scientists involved seemed to be intrested in following it up.

In 1996 the Atlanta Olympics closing ceremony finished being aired on BBC at 6am, after which a wild life documentary on Tasmania was scheduled, the information in the TV guide, cant remember the name, made particular mention that it included the ‘Tasmanian Wolf, until recently thought to be extinct’. Having read this I set all the alarm clocks I could find, set the video, and after a full day of work watched the entire ceremony through the night, in case the times were changed, or wrong or if the alarms didn’t wake me.
At 6 in the morning the ceremony finished and sure enough the documentary began, on desert reptiles.
