On the Affinities and probable habits of the extinct Australian marsupial, Thylacoleo carnifex, Owen. Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society. ; 24 (1–2): – 3 Anderson C. Palaeontological notes No.1, Macropus titan Owen and Thylacoleo carnifex Owen. Records of the Australian Museum. ; 35 – 4 Finch ME.   Here may be noticed three genera of large extinct marsupials from the Pleistocene of Australia whose affinities appear to ally them to the wombat-group on the one hand and to the phalangers on the other. The longest known is Diprotodon, an animal of the size of a rhinoceros, with a dental formula of i. 3 / 1, c. 0 / 0, p. 1 / 1, m. 4 / 4, total

  Photos purported to show 'mystery animals' are always great fun. One of the most perplexing and curious of the lot was taken on a box Brownie camera near Goroke, western Victoria, Australia, in A few stone tools have been found in the bone beds, indicating that men and megafauna were contemporary in the area, probably for years. Cut-marks on some bones have been interpreted as the teeth marks of the carnivorous predator Thylacoleo carnifex, an extinct marsupial carnivore. Moore, Clarence Bloomfield () CATEGORY: person.

The Quaternary period (from ± million years ago to the present) saw the extinctions of numerous predominantly megafaunal species, which resulted in a collapse in faunal density and diversity and the extinction of key ecological strata across the globe. The most prominent event in the Late Pleistocene is differentiated from previous Quaternary pulse extinctions by the widespread.   I recommend the book to any fans of natural history and science, especially morphology. Indeed, Rupke’s edition was released in paperback for the Darwinian centennial, as an abridgement of his book.

Suggested articles Author: Richard Owen. Thylacoleo ("pouch lion") is an extinct genus of carnivorous marsupials that lived in Australia from the late Pliocene to the late Pleistocene (2 million to 46 thousand years ago).

Some of these "marsupial lions" were the largest mammalian predators in Australia of that time, with Thylacoleo carnifex approaching the weight of a small estimated average weight for the species ranges.

Owen’s assertions did not go unchallenged, however. In a later paper “Additional Evidence of the Affinities of the Extinct Marsupial Quadruped Thylacoleo carnifex (OWEN),” the anatomist includes a quite humorous remark in response to one of his critics.

“Additional Evidence of the Affinities of the Extinct Marsupial Quadruped Thylacoleo Carnifex (Owen).” Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B-Biological Sciences (): ———. “On the Affinities of Thylacoleo.” Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B-Biological Sciences (): Thylacoleo carnifex, a marsupial lion, is an extinct species of carnivorous marsupial mammal that lived in Australia from the early to the late Pleistocene ( million–46 thousand years ago).

Despite its name, it is not closely related to the lion, but is a member of the order Diprotodontia, one of the taxonomic groups of Australian marsupials.

The extinct marsupial ‘lion’ Thylacoleo carnifex was Australia’s largest mammalian carnivore. Despite being the topic of more discussion than any other extinct Australian marsupial (excepting perhaps the Thylacine), basic aspects of its palaeobiology, including its locomotory repertoire, remain poorly understood.
