Default AUS: What Ousted Our Tigers? Devils Did It.


Could it be possible devils and quolls, who were so well suited to the new Australia, managed to out-compete tigers and eat them off the land? That is one possibility raised by the study. It's backed up by another possible clue trapped in the fossil record: as the number of tigers shrunk, the number of Dasyuridae bloomed.
