Now extinct, the Tasmanian wolf, also called the Tasmanian tiger, was once hunted as a pest throughout Tasmania and in parts of Australia. The last known wild specimen was shot in 1930. The last captive specimen died in 1936. Although the thylacine, a marsupial, is not a true wolf, it occupied much of the same predatory niche as modern wolves. When compared with the wolf, this species is an excellent example of convergent evolution.
