Its size is estimated to be similar to that of a grey wolf; the head and body together were around 5 feet long, and its teeth were less adapted for shearing compared to those of the now-extinct thylacine.[2]. The last captive thylacine, later referred to as “Benjamin” (although its sex has never been confirmed) was captured in 1933 by Elias Churchill and sent to the Hobart Zoo where it lived for three years. Thylacinus potens (meaning "powerful pouch") was the largest species of marsupials in the family Thylacinidae, originally known from a single poorly preserved fossil discovered by Michael O. Woodburne in 1967 in a Late Miocene locality near Alice Springs, Northern Territory. It was the only member of the family Thylacinidae to survive into modern times. Thylacinus. The only recent member was the thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus), commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger or Tasmanian wolf, which became extinct in 1936 due to hunting. The Alcoota Fauna, central Australia: an integrated palaeontological and geological study. Many plant and animal groups died out and other forms, better adapted to a drying world, took their place. Il Thylacinus potens Woodburne, 1967 («tilacino potente»), che poteva raggiungere le dimensioni di un lupo, è stato uno dei più grossi membri della famiglia dei Tilacinidi. The Alcoota region was subtropical open woodland during the late Miocene. Thyacines were unable to be bred in captivity. 1992.

A specialized thylacinid. Thylacines were dog-like marsupial carnivores whose last representative, the Tasmanian 'Tiger', tragically became extinct last century. The following account is of the life history of T. cynocephalus, much of which would have applied to T. potens. The following information on the diet of the Tasmanian Thylacine, Thylacinus cynocephalus, probably applied to Thylacinus potens. The thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus, or 'dog-headed pouched-dog'), also known as the 'Tasmanian tiger' or 'Tasmanian wolf' was a carnivorous marsupial. It was probably introduced to Australia by Asian seafarers about 4,000 years ago. Discover (and save!) Several kinds of thylacine have lived in Australia during the past 25 million years; the Powerful Thylacine was the largest of them all.

The modern thylacine was not recorded as cracking bones as part of its regular feeding habits, but known as a consumer of carrion, and the individual T. potens may have encountered a mass death during a period of drought in the sub-tropical Alcoota region. Thylacinus potens is known only from a partial palate, held by the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Alice Springs. It would have weighed about 38-39 kilograms, heavier than T. cynocephalus (estimated weight: 29.5 kilograms) but much smaller than T. megiriani(estimated weight: over 57 kilograms). The description of the species was published in 1967, the author Michael O. Woodburne distinguishing the new thylacine with the epithet potens for what he interpreted as a "powerful" predator. The traditional view has been that thylacines were descended from a dasyurid ancestor perhaps during the Oligocene. potens — index influential, predominant Burton s Legal Thesaurus.

Woodburne 1967. What is a thylacine? [5], An examination of tooth wear that suggests durophagy, probably bone-cracking behaviour, is interpreted as an evolutionary recent practice, to which the dentition was only partially suited, or a consequence of the ecological circumstances that created the mass assemblage of fossils at the same site. Thylacinus potens, Thylacinus megiriani and Thylacinus cynocephalus. It was also the largest meat-eating marsupial of its time. Tasmanian pouched wolves; Tasmanian wolves; thylacines vok.
