Thylacine Hair: New observations

  • -

A recent conservation treatment of a newly discovered Thylacine skin has provided an important opportunity to document the appearance and structure of Thylacine hair.

This session will describe the history of the skin (now in the collection of the National Museum of Australia) and using newly recorded SEM and microscopy images, and live microscopy, will engage in a discussion about current research into the shape and properties of Thylacine hair, a topic that is remarkably poorly covered in the literature.
