Finding a partial Thylacoleo - Day 4
Video | Updated 2 years ago
This video documents the process of finding a partial Thylacoleo skeleton, and the difficulties that can sometimes arise when moving around such tight spaces.
On our other trip we discovered another partial Thylacoleo skeleton, with a jaw and part of a skull showing in the sediment, so we’re just going to go in and have a look.

Just moving around like a worm… I sort of came up a different way, and it’s a tad tight.
The Thylacoleo was Australia’s top predator. It had very powerful claws with opposable thumbs. It’s roughly the size of a jaguar, and it probably had one of the most powerful bite forces of any known predator.
