The thylacine is the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It's commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger because of its striped back and is believed by most experts to have become extinct in the 20th century. Yet in 1967, Col Bailey sighted a Tasmanian tiger along the shores of the Coorong, in South Australia. Then in 1993, a chance encounter with an elderly bushman unlocked a wealth of previously untold information that led Col into the vast and untrodden wilderness of Tasmania's Weld Valley. In Shadow Of The Thylacine, Col tells of his search for the Tasmanian tiger, revealing why he believes that this shy animal still exists in remote areas of Australia.
