Re: Introduction and Suggested Books
Did you ever get a response to your question regarding recording
the Discovery Channel's cloning program??? E-mail me if you didn't.
I recorded it with difficulty (thunderstorm here too).
It's interesting to see folks collecting items/material relating
to the Tassie Tiger. In a year or so I hope to visit Tasmania and
plan to photograph any Thylacine folk art I run across. In the town
of Mole Creek, there's a bar (or lounge if you prefer), the Mole
Creek Hotel Tiger Bar, that is completely decorated in a Tassie Tiger
theme. One wall has a large mural with Tassie Tiger figures on
motorcycles... sounds weird, but a photo I received of the whole wall
There are various artists in Tasmania that will do commission
work on Thylacine art requests. I recently had a large Huon Pine
coffee table delivered from an artist near Hobart... it came in a
huge crate as big as a medium sized fridge... very well packed. The
top is about 4 feet long and has a nearly life-sized Thylacine carved
in high relief. It didn't come cheap, but it's museum quality. If
anybody's interested in a pic... e-mail me.
On ebay recently, there was an auction for what at first looked
like a mummified Thylacine head, but the ears were wrong and there
was a distinct striped pattern visible over the entire head extending
onto the muzzle, very unlike a Thylacine. I was stumped as to the
identity of the creature... until I read the end of the listing and
discovered that it was a piece put together by a taxidermist from
bits & pieces of several Australian carnivores. Missing were any
parts that could have come from a Tassie Tiger.
