As far as we know, the thylacine—also known as the Tasmanian tiger—went extinct on September 7, 1936, (though locals still report sightings) when Benjamin, the last known thylacine in captivity, passed away at the Beaumaris Zoo in the Tasmanian capital city of Hobart.

Eighteen months before his death, Benjamin was captured on film and now, for the very first time, the rare footage has been unearthed and shared with the public by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA).

Ok. You have to see the video. It's fantastic. It's really cool.
