What a , dire, mistake.

Dire Wolves not really being wolves this whole time was a hell of a plot twist.

this but unironically
dunon why they always depict them with shitty jaws though
>>
>>3648593
what do you mean they're not wolves? they're pack hunting canines related to wolves aren't they?
>>
>>3648947
Its recently been discovered they're not closely related to wolves but canines that evolved to look like wolves through convergent evolution.
>>
>>3646440
>>3646524
Their ecosystem will be filled with the floating bodies of 200M chinks. I know they don't have the cognitive capacity but I do like to see the moment when the tables have turned and they get eaten instead of mindlessly murdering and eating every animal they can lay their hands on.

Shame there is almost no info of pic related. There's only one stuffed specimen found in a basement.

Is it even remotely possible they're still alive, they seemed very elusive.

yes
>but canines that evolved to look like wolves through convergent evolution.
no, that whole group looks like wolves. the common ancestor looked like a wolf
>>
>>3649118
In what way is it revisionism? The concept of convergent evolution makes perfect sense to me so I'm not sure what you mean

they arent extinct. pic related.

much like the beaver who switched from a diurnal to crepuscular lifestyle to avoid humans. the thylacine did the same. it avoids humans by living between the timeframes humans don't bother to search.


the thylacine is alive and well.

I want to believe, but considering it's a large carnivore, it seems unlikely that we STILL haven't been able to find factual proof that it's still around, I mean, not even skulls/ corpses of dead specimens? Maybe Aussies are incompetent and there is no longer much research put into finding them, but if it was still around, how can the largest carnivorous marsupial be so hard to find?
Granted, Australia and Tasmania are really big, it makes you wonder if maybe a population has managed to survive undiscovered/adapted to avoid humans like you said, but it doesn't seem feasible considering it has to compete for resources with dingoes, foxes, feral dogs, and any other introduced carnivore, not to mention humans themselves.
Again, I want to believe they're still out there, but it seems unlikely, but never give up hope!

ok several things to push the belief

>it isnt a large carnivore. it is a medium carnivore at best. weighing less than 100 lbs. It's relative small size will make it hard for people to find it.
>skeletal remains will disappear frequently. they did a study when trying to prove bigfoot through animal remains. they used a deer corpse, in less than a week, the deer corpse was completely destroyed by nature, bones and all.
> There have been few studies in southern Tasmania, it is a place that is vast and hard to navigate. the few people that live there, swear by their soul they have seen thylacine in the dense bush

If they weren't extinct you wouldn't give a shit about them
>>
>>3649836
Several of them are pretty cool, would make good "classic animals" if they still existed.

The worst case scenario is that they did survive in extremely limited numbers for a few decades after their "official" extinction date, only to be gradually picked off by crocodiles or dingos.

I really fucking hope they still exist. They're cool and one day I hope people will breed them into Marsupial pugs to mog people on /an/.

I really wish the land crocodiles were still around. They're Archosaurs with four chambered hearts and they just seem so fucking cool.
