The Tasmanian tiger status
The Tasmanian tiger hunted singly or in pairs and mainly at night. Tasmanian tigers preferred kangaroos and other marsupials, small rodents and birds. They were reported to have preyed on sheep and poultry after European colonisation, although the extent of this was almost certainly exaggerated. Tasmanian tigers are carnivorous.
