Tasmanian Tiger

Another reason is that they are a great example of convergent evolution (the process by which organisms which are not related evolve similarities by themselves when adapting to similar environments) This occured with gray wolves, as shown in the picture on the right.

TASMANIAN TIGER

SHOULD BE REVIVEDThey should be revived because as research says, they only got extinct around 1936, therefore if they are brought back not much in the environment has changed, and they would easily survive better than other animals which are revived. Seeing that they were also extinct due to being hunted by humans — this means that they weren’t extinct due to nature, and that nature didn’t select them to be extinct. In other words, human’s lead them to extinction in the first place.

SHOULDN'T BE REVIVEDThey should not be revived because as mentioned before that they were apart of the ritual practices, it is also mentioned that they were a food source to these people, and if they are revived then they could possibly get extinct and harmed again due to being used as meat. The reason that they were hunted out was because they were being blamed for the death of many sheep, and shepherds could blame them with the same thought in mind and hunt them as done like before.
