Owen presents a comprehensive account of what we know the thylacine’s biology, behavior, and so on, weaving in the tale of its unfortunate interaction with human beings. He discusses the animal’s two extinctions: the first on the Australian mainland, the second on Tasmania. Owen includes a discussion of recent sightings and the proposals to bring back the tiger via cloning.
