Interesting claims being made in this video:
Would be nice if it's true.
I believe that is the standard procedure in Tassie for major marsupial rediscoveries. Just be thankful he didn't have a slash half way through filming.My skepti-meter is off the charts here. Can't even being to enumerate the long list of massive rediscoveries / discoveries announced via handheld video while walking with a beer?!?
I presume that Thylacine are rarer than Hedgehogs, the latter of which I no longer see dead on roads and I'd also think that traffic on any roads near a Thylacine population, would be pretty sparse?If there were Thylacines close enough to civilisation for people to be wandering about with a tinny, there would be roadkill specimens.
Likelihood is, in diminishing order of probability - ambiguous pics they've misinterpretated -> doctored pics/fraud they've set up -> fraud someone has set up unbeknownst to most of the group -> ThylacineApparently it's a group that's hyped up photos in the past, then released something that turned out not to be a thylacine. That being said, if they actually have experts confirming the photo, that's... interesting.
We'll see in March, I guess.
Looks like my hat is safe, again.Not looking good, I'm afraid:
