Rare Video Footage Of Last-Known Tasmanian Tiger Released

It's from a 1935 news clip

Video footage of the last-known thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, has been released by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA).

It’s a 21-second clip from a newsreel back in 1935. It shows the tiger, Benjamin, prowling around his cage at Beaumaris Zoo in Hobart, Tasmania. This was just a few months before he passed away.

Tasmaniam tigers look like a cross between a wolf, a fox, and a large cat. They lived in Australia but became extinct around 2000 years ago.
