About This Project

Existing papers describing the hair structure of the thylacine (also known as Tasmanian tiger, Thylacinus cynocephalus) do so in passing, as part of analyses of Tasmanian mammals in general. These papers date to 1950 (with hand drawn illustrations) and 1985 (with limited micrographs/photographs).

This project aims to produce a rich set of high-res micrographs documenting the structure and diagnostic characteristics of thylacine hair, invaluable for identifying the presence of the species.
