I think this is my first photograph for this community, glad to be part of your group. This is a Tasmanian Devil their outlook is critical and the local Zoo has a wildlife sanctuary. The animals live on a small local reserve, the idea is that they breed and healthy stock will be released in the wild. Thanks again to put up with me.

Saw a documentary on Tasmanian wildlife over the weekend and was very much intrigued by the Tasmanian Tiger.

Beautiful marsupial that is most likely extinct, even though sightings are still reported.

Also learned that the Tasmanian devil is affected by a cancer that is contagious. Scary stuff.
Thylacine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The modern thylacine first appeared about 4 million years ago. Species of the family Thylacinidae date back to the beginning of the Miocene; since the early 1990s, at least seven fossil species have been uncovered at Riversleigh, part of Lawn Hill National Park in northwest Queensland.

Parallel evolution and the ecological niche : Parallel evolution fascinated Charles Darwin and was one of the pillars on which he built the theory of evolution and natural selection. It is indeed quite amazing that a marsupial would evolve to fit an ecological niche which was empty. That of a top predator; much like the big cats evolved in some parts of our planet. Even now, the Fossa (http://goo.gl/LtEXdd) is a top marsupial predator in Madagascar. While the Thylacoleo was a top marsupial predator in Australia, it had enormous bite strength, more powerful than any living predator. A evolutionary niche indeed!

Marsupials are the group of mammals commonly thought of as pouched mammals (like the wallaby and kangaroo ). They give live birth, but they do not have long gestation times like placental mammals. Instead, they give birth very early and the young animal, essentially a helpless embryo continues to develop, often for weeks or months depending on the species. (http://goo.gl/2WS58H)

Thylacoleo was the largest carnivorous (meat eating) marsupial to have ever lived on earth. It had the most unique tooth pattern of any known animal, with enormous slicing premolars (4 - 6 cm long shearing blades on each jaw that slid against each other like a pair of scissors) and large stabbing incisors, it had what was possibly the most powerful bite of any mammal, living or extinct. With its powerful jaws and massive forelimbs with huge retractable thumb claws for grasping and holding down its prey, it probably hunted other large animals such as Zygomaturus and Simosthenurus. It is believed Thylacoleo captured its prey by ambush, possibly dropping onto it from above and, like modern lions and leopards, clamping the prey's neck and windpipe in its jaws, killing by suffocation. Opposable first toes would have provided grip and balance for climbing trees and Thylacoleo likely dragged its large prey carcass up a tree to feed, much in the manner of a modern leopard. This removed it from the reach of scavengers like the Tasmanian devil. (http://goo.gl/3EZ4gY)

One of the most spectacular examples of parallel evolution is provided by the two main branches of the mammals, the placentals and marsupials, which have followed independent evolutionary pathways following the break-up of land-masses such as Gondwanaland roughly 100 million years ago. Examples of these include the litopterns and horses, whose legs are difficult to distinguish; the European sabre-tooth tiger (Smilodon) and the South American marsupial sabre-tooth (Thylacosmilus); the Tasmanian wolf and the European wolf; likewise marsupial and placental moles, flying squirrels, and (arguably) mice.
