    New footage has been released of the Thylacine at Hobart Zoo, believed to have been filmed between 1933-1936. It is only 7 seconds long, but any new footage is a valuable addition

    And some more new thylacine footage, of 'Benjamin' in 1935. This footage is 21 seconds long, and filmed on high quality film stock

    Interesting video , thank you for sharing it !

    "Being forced out of his natural habitat by the march of civilization"...Very strange and unsettling to hear it put that way, but I guess this was the 1930's and it is an attitude that continues unabated in some form or other right up to the present day.

    Not new footage this time, but a new photograph. Two thylacines at what looks like Hobart Zoo.
