Sleeping Tazmanian tiger in color
Australia’s iconic thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, was hunted to death in the early Twentieth century for allegedly killing sheep; however, a study later confirmed they had such weak jaws that prey was probably no larger than a possum.

Tasmanian tiger was no sheep killer
Australia’s iconic thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, was hunted to death in the early Twentieth century for allegedly killing sheep; however, a study later confirmed they had such weak jaws that prey was probably no larger than a possum.
The last images of the "Tasmanian Tiger" nearing extinction. Biologist David Fleay's haunting photos at a Hobart zoo in 1922 are known around the world. Able to open its jaws to an unusual 80 degrees, the thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus ‘dog-headed pouched one’) was the largest carnivorous marsupial of modern times. Hunted to the brink of extinction as a "sheep-killer," a 2011 study revealed its jaws too weak to kill sheep. http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/14730055 Creatures, Interesting Animals, Unusual Animals, Cryptozoology, Possum
