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.

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.

A cast is being made of tracks left by a two-metre long ancient animal in north east Fife. The tracks were made by a giant six-legged “sea scorpion” called Hibbertopterus as it crawled over damp sand about 330 million years ago. It is the largest known walking trackway of a eurypterid or any invertebrate animal. […]
