I looked at the picture at the second link provided. My first impression was that the stripes are wrong. A thylacine had many narrow stripes, the
animal pictured has only a few. Since coloration of hair and skin is set at birth, even a pup should have many narrow stripes.
Just to check, I pulled up images on Bing. Most specimens have twice as many stripes.
The hair itself also doesn't seem quite right, although I do admit that I don't have any firsthand knowledge. In the picture, the coat is smooth,
fine, and almost shiny. The pictures and videos have always impressed me as being a rough, coarse coat.
A tiger can't change it's stripes, nor it's coat. It's not a thylacine.
And then I went to the source of the picture....Where Light Meets Dark and read their analysis. I amazed even myself.....they reached the same
conclusion, for some of the same reasoning.
And I'm taking codeine for a cough. Must be more awake than I thought.
And from a Photoshop standpoint......some of the grass in the presumed to be in the foreground is transparent. That should have been enough to
dismiss it without further question.....it's a really amateur job.
