Using 3D Technologies to Examine Rare Specimens of the Extinct Tasmanian Tiger

In 1936, the last known Tasmanian Tiger died in captivity at Hobart Zoo; locked out of its shelter, it was unable to survive the extreme daytime heat and below-freezing nighttime temperatures of Tasmania to which it was subjected. Since that time, much like Elvis, there have been sightings of the animal in the wild, but […]
