The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia has just released a rare look at an extinct animal called the Tasmanian tiger.
Dating back to 1935, the film documents Benjamin, the last Tasmanian tiger. The creature was a carnivorous marsupial that lived in Australia, preying on Kangaroos, rodents and small birds.
