Great video interview of a Gary Opit who clames to have seen a Tasmanian Tiger (Thylacine). Only problem is that it’s not clear when or where the sighting happened… From the video description it says he’s from Yelgun near Byron Bay, New South Wales.
So the Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) has finally been cleared of killing sheep – but the news comes 75 years too late! New studies suggests the Tasmanian Tiger’s jaw was not strong enough to kill sheep and the bounty on their heads was unjust!
This month also marks the sad death of the last captive Tasmanian Tiger, know as Benjamin.
A giant ant growing over 5cm (2in) long crossed the Arctic during hot periods in the Earth’s history, scientists say, using land bridges between continents.
Little is known about how these ants lived or what they ate – but wings are present on the fossils. They are found, in Europe and now in Wyoming.
New study suggests Adders, toads and lizards are disappearing from UK. Other amphibians and reptiles are also under threat.
Slow worms, common lizards and grass snakes are also becoming less widespread, as are the common toad, common frog and the great crested newt.
