records up to the end of the Permain, about 250 million years ago. At
that time perhaps 90% of all species were eliminated. Given that they
haven't been seen since it is as sure as anything can be that they

is in the east and they cannot catch moas.

Which they can't, moas being in New Zealand and both being extinct, like
the trilobites... oh, I see.

The population is saved by donations from Girl Scouts who provide the
thylacines with some moas.
