The family Thylacinidae has no living members. The last surviving member of this family was the Tasmanian tiger, also called the Tasmanian wolf. Thylacines were once native to regions of Tasmania and in parts of Australia. Considered a pest and a danger to sheep farming, the Thylacine was hunted to extinction. The last known wild specimen was shot in 1930 while the last captive specimen died in 1936.
