Sometimes there is speculation to whether a certain animal species is truly extinct, or is just in good hiding. There is an animal that I have been reading articles on, and it’s not because I was looking for particular information on it, it’s more like the mention of another species in comparison was being talked about in a few articles I read online. The mention of this animal got me to thinking that it would probably be cool, and educational to share with all you animal lovers out there some information as well as a tutorial on "how to draw a Tasmanian tiger", step by step. These odd looking creators are said to be extinct, and the last known one to be alive was back in 1910. They are from Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea, and they are also known as Tasmanian wolves and the thylacine. Despite their dog like appearance, these animals are actually marsupials. Both female and male Tasmanian tigers have a pouch. The males use their pouches to cover their genitals which enable them to hunt in undesirable areas like thick prickly bush, and the pouch also helps when the thylacine fight other males. Scientists believe that the closest known relative to the Tasmanian tiger or wolf is the Tasmanian devil, and or the numbat. They were carnivores in every sense of the word, and they also had a ruthless way to take their prey down. The species to me is pretty awesome looking and even though it is believed that the Tasmanian tiger or wolf is extinct, there has also been sighting of the Tasmanian wolf as well as footprints. Well, I guess that’s about it. Have fun drawing a Tasmanian tiger, and I will get busy with uploading the rest of the tutorials I have for you today. Peace people and enjoy!
