The Mystery of Australia's Past

One night Jeod came home from the Australian Animal Center in Tasmania. He came home to his farm in a small forest. He found that 3 sheep and chickens were gone. He searched and searched. He found 1 tooth. He noticed it was shaped like a dog's tooth.

"I will check if Cracker of Beach lost a tooth," said Jeod.

In the morning, he checked. No match. He went to find information in the library 5 miles away. He decided to take Cracker for a walk, but not Beach because she was nursing 5 baby dingos that thought she was their mother.

In the library, he gave the tooth to the librarian to look for a match in a book for the animal. She found the tooth matched the Tasmanian wolf or tiger. When coming back he found that there were wolf-like paw prints.

"The Tasmanian tiger is extinct, but it matches the pawprints," said Jeod.

He tracked the Tasmanian tiger. He saw it and took it back to the Australian Animal Center.

"Wow," said Jeod. "The Tasmanian tiger was a mother! It had not 3, not 4, but 5 cubs! And we thought the Tasmanian wolf was extinct!"

Case closed!
