Dog Headed Pouched One

Thylacine is greek for “Dog Headed Pouched One”. The Thylacine, aka Tasmanian Tiger, was haunted for its fur until it went extinct in the early 20th century. I love this animal because of its many unique qualities... first of all, its a marsupial, CRAZY! Second, its jaws opened 120 degrees, which made it formidable predator and a gnarly death machine. Apparently the Thylacine is a candidate for cloning procedures after the technology is perfected along with woolly mammoths.

My inspiration. This magnificent Tasmanian Tiger was hunted to extinction for Its fur.  It had the widest jaw radius of any mammal able to stretch its mouth to 120 degrees.  It was also a marsupial!
