Is this a Tasmanian wolf record?

(Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia)

Neil Waters, a Tasmanian wolf researcher from the Tasmanian Wolf Awareness Group in Australia, claims to have conclusive evidence that the Tasmanian wolf did not become extinct during the 1930s as experts have estimated.

He shared a video with photos taken about three weeks ago that seemingly show the marsupial alive and breathing, with one of them - he says - leaving no doubt that this is the real thing.



The Tasmanian wolf is a mammal that was officially classified as an extinct animal in 1986, 50 years after the last of its kind was observed.

Experts speculate that it became extinct as a result of intense hunting, disease and human intrusion into its livelihoods.

Neil Waters is sure the animal did not become extinct and sent the images to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery for re-evaluation, now expecting them to agree to reclassify the breed under "severe extinction" rather than "extinct."

"These pictures are not fake, this is not a hoax, our experts are real people. Not actors," read the description of the video, which received more than 20,000 views online.



In the video, Mr. Waters reveals three photos of a family of alleged Tasmanian wolves - a father, mother and son.

He believes the third image is conclusive proof that the pocket animal is still alive.

In the picture you can see a small animal with a straight tail and what looks like a series of stripes along its hindquarters - two features that indicate that it is a Tasmanian wolf.

"This is the picture I rely on the most because I know what I'm looking at here," Waters said, "and what we have here ... some stripes on the tail, some stripes on the buttocks."

Response from the Tasmanian Museum

Mr. Waters presented the images to Tasmanian animal expert and museum and Tasmanian art gallery curator Nick Mooney, who came to the unfortunate conclusion that the animals in the video are not Tasmanian wolves as Mr. Waters thinks.

"Nick Mooney has concluded that based on the physical characteristics shown in the photos provided by Mr. Waters, it is very likely that the animals are not Tasmanian wolves," a statement from the museum said.

Mr. Mooney claims that in his opinion the animals shown in the pictures are the Padmelon, which is the smallest mammal in the kangaroo family.

The museum's statement said there had been no confirmed sightings of Tasmanian wolves since 1936.



Mr. Waters denies and continues to believe that this is a family of Tasmanian wolves, adding that everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

He said in another video: "With all due respect, I do not agree with Nick Mooney's opinion and that's fine - it's fine. He encourages me in his report to get as many opinions as possible, because his is just one opinion."
