To kill thylacine ,
Requires time machine.

I love this one Inc.

It's very poignant, isn't it, and in a funny way still has that tragic, surprising, and unfortunate end that so many of the Aussi animals have in this series of yours.

Excellent!

Seems to be a common thing with the aussie animals....all getting rare or endangered or at risk...

don't you like animals?

still have to kill me a bilby though :)

i was thinking the other day how it would feel being the last of a species, and if they really knew. immense sadness beyond understanding i imagine

To be the last of a species! Whew!

What would you do? Sheep?

I suppose you would feel like a cobwebby aristo who had to conceded that he's lost the family home.

It would be desolate and lonely probably.
