However, these claims have been described as "absurd" by (Bednarik, 2013:484) on the basis of the discrepancy between the latest known survival of Thylacoleo and the young age of the art, as well as the lack of fossils of Thylacoleo from the regions of the Kimberley and Arnhem Land.

The Marsupial Lion (Thylacoleo carnifex; meat cutting-marsupial-lion; pouched-lion; pouchlion) was a large, carnivorous marsupial that lived in Australia from the early to late Pleistocene Era (1,600,000–46,000 years ago). A large proportion of its environment would have been similar to the southern third of Australia today, semiarid, open scrub and woodland punctuated by waterholes and water courses. Unoccupied Wastes. The Bingara Fauna: a Pleistocene vertebrate fauna from Murchison County, New South Wales, Australia. When modern humans first arrived in Australia, likely more than 60,000 years ago, it is thought that they had substantial impacts on the ecosystem by efficiently hunting large animals and by altering vegetation patterns through fire-stick farming. The cause of the extinction is an active, contentious and factionalised field of research where politics and ideology often takes precedence over scientific evidence, especially when it comes to the possible implications regarding Aboriginal people (who appear to be responsible for the extinctions).

The extinction of one of Australia’s top predators, Thylacoleo carnifex – aka the marsupial lion – was likely a result of changing weather patterns and loss of habitat rather than human impacts, new research has found. It had strong forelimbs, with enormous retractable, cat-like claws, a characteristic not found in other marsupials. The claws were well-suited to securing prey and for climbing trees. Zoology: Marsupial Tiger. [11][12], The marsupial lion's limb proportions and muscle mass distribution indicate that, although it was a powerful animal, it was not a particularly fast runner.
