Countdown to Publication: Fun Fact 42--Have You Seen a Thylacine?

Maybe you've never seen a thylacine, but it will help when you read the book to know what one is: Thylacine - "the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. Virtually wiped out in the wild due to constant hunting (they were thought to be a threat to sheep and other small farm animals) and the encroachment of humans on their already limited habitat, the Thylacine was finally recognized as being in danger of becoming extinct in 1936, but much too late." The thylacine is considered extinct.
