...Stephen R. Sleightholme; Cameron R. Campbell ABSTRACT As with human fingerprints, the stripe pattern of the Thylacine ( Thylacinus cynocephalus ) is unique to each individual, with a marked degree of variation and asymmetry. This paper examines the stripe pattern variation in 141 of the 180 known...
