Actually this species is neither a tiger nor a wolf. This species are belonging from Australia. It is one of the largest or biggest marsupial carnivorous on our earth. The word Tasmanian is used with this species because we find a stripe on the body of this species as similar in the body of Tiger found in Tasmania or it just resemble that it belong from the Tasmanian wolf family species. This species is found on the Tasmania Islands along years ago that was about 2,000 years. This species totally disappear at the beginning of the 19th century. There are several reasons that are responsible for the disappearing of this Thylacine Species. Some of the reasons such as Too much killing from Farmers, killing by hunters, They lose their living environment as well as because of human being disturbed in their living environment. This all reason brings this Thylacine species to the path of extinction. The complete extinction of this species occurs in the year 1936, a Thylacine species died in zoo located in Tasmania. The last Thylacine species are being hunted during the year 1930 by a Tasmania farmer. This all say our record book.
2. Steller's Sea Cow
This Steller's is also known as Hydrodamalis Gigas. This is a belong from a Water herbivorous mammal. A time when this species found in large number around the area of the North Pacific ocean. Its name is kept in the name of a german zoologist Georg Wilhelm Steller because he is the first who give description about this species. This species is larger than is relatively species such as Manatee and Dugong. The length of this Steller Sea Cow is about 28 ft. This is really large. The large size of this species becomes its enemy because people start hunting this species in search of food as well as their skin and mostly for their subcutaneous fat. The life span of this Steller Sea Cow is very less on our earth. They survive only for the period of three Decades. In the year 1758 the last time this species is seen on our earth before extinction.
The Quagga is also known as Equus Quagga Quagga. This Quagga belong from the family of the plains zebra. This species mostly found in a large plain area of the cape province of a country like South Africa. When we compare it to modern period zebra it is quite different from this zebra. The body of this species has a stripe only around the front part of the body. When looking at the at back part of this species you cannot find any kind of stripe on the body of this species. The ancient age farmer thinks that species as a pest because they eat all types of grasses that is used by the farmer to feed their cattle. So they start killing this species in a large number. Other extinction reason is that this species is being hunted because of their meat as well as their skin which is used by the people in leather Industry. Hunters from Europe and North America look this species as a hunting animal and they make it as a game to hunt this species in a large number. This all reason is responsible for their extinction.

This species is known because of its typical thick coat that has a two different types of hair. There are several reasons that are responsible for its extinction but the most important and powerful reason is that this species is hunted on a large basis by the Neanderthal man. There is a prediction that the extinction of this species along with all other species of Pleistocene megafauna is occurring because they cannot make their body adjust to the changing climatic condition. From the fossils our researchers say that this species remain on our planet until 8000 BC and after that they Extinct.
5. Caspian Tiger

It is one of the examples of such development. During the beginning of 20th century Russian Government destroys the natural environment of this species and kill 1000 of tiger for the purpose of a land reclamation project. Due to the deforestation large number of tigers lost their natural habitat. This makes them hard to more from here to there. If they come in front of the people they start killing this species. This all reasons are responsible for the extinction of this Caspian tiger. This is a prediction that the Caspian tiger killed in the year 1958 is the last Caspian Tiger that we had on our planet. After this species keep in the list of extinct species.
