A century ago the settlers of Tasmania called him a hyena, a zebra wolf or a tiger wolf and hunted him almost to extinction As his numbers decreased, so did his bad reputation for making off with domesticated sheep and poultry Nowadays, the rare survivor is hunted to make sure he survives A few are protected in national parks and a few are still hiding out in the wilds of western Tasmania Nowadays the Tasmanian wolf usually is called the thylacme, a scientific name which means the pouched dog with a wolf head Like most mammals of this region he is a marsupial and the pouch refers to the pocket in which the female rears her immature offspring This is not the only reason why he cannot be classed as a dog, though he looks like one and behaves much like a predatory wolf He has four incisors on each side of both jaws the true dogs have only three The thylacme is three feet long, plus an 18 inch tail and a wolfish head with a rather long face, bright black eyes and rounded ears His short, thick hair is lightish brown and there are 16 to 18 chocolate brown stripes across his back, between his shoulders and the broad base of his tail In other parts of the world, the vegetarian mammals far outnumber the meat eaters In the Australian region of marsupials, the vegetarians are even more numerous and the carnivores even more rare And the thylacme happens to be the biggest of all marsupial carnivores His menu includes birds and small rat kangaroos and sometimes he manages to bring down a nice fat wallaby The thylacme is a night hunter but though his sturdy legs are long and strong he is not a speeder What's more when he himself is pursued, he often bounds along on his hind legs like a kangaroo When hunting, he depends on endurance and tracking skills Sometimes he hunts alone, sometimes with a relative The partners communicate with doggy growls and barks and sometimes the thylacme whines like a puppy In the distant past, his hunting grounds included the entire continent of Australia But many centuries ago, this region was found and settled by sea faring Polynesians They brought with them their half tame yellow dingo dog In time, the dingoes ran wild and somehow managed to wipe out all the native thylacmes. When modern settlers reached the scene, the thylacme survived only on the wondrous island of Tasmania As a hungry predator, one would expect this Tasmanian wolf to be a fierce, hot tempered character Not so By nature he is a shy and very gentle animal He gets along well with zoo keepers, though he never breeds in captivity Because of his shyness and rarity, little is known of the thylacme's family life The female's pouch opens near the rear, which is unusual Her litter may include one or two, three or four helpless little infants at a time We do not know how often she breeds but thanks to modern conservation laws, her offspring now are protected from extinction Though rare, the thylacme no longer is listed as an endangered species Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

HUNTER Betty handed back the little photo "That was at your dad's birthday party in 1968, Dad she said "How old was he then9" 'Pretty old, but his brain was replied Peter "I remember he told us he was as old as the last two figures of the year he was born What year9 (Answer tomorrow) Friday's answer: 25 questions answered, 23 correctly. Mr. Hunter answers all letters: ideas welcomed. Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I have a question to ask you that I am ashamed to ask my own doc- tor I like beef kidney very much, but my husband told me it contains urine from the animal Ever since he told me this I won't eat kidney again Is this true9 Also, what nutritional value does it have and why does it have an odor when cooking9 Dear Reader There is nothing to be ashamed of Kidney is considered a delicacy in many parts of the world, including Europe There probably is some urine in the kidney or at least left over molecules of it inside the tissue After all, the kidney is a filter, and it filters urine out of the blood so it can be discarded Just keep in mind though, that urine isn't as bad as most people in our culture seem to think it is It is literally part of the blood In a sense you have urine in all of the blood in your body and that means in all the tissues of the body That also means there is unne in that steak you eat. too Urine in a normal person or animal is sterile, free of bacteria, because it is part of blood It is made up of water, salts, and left-over products of what you eat The urea it con- tains is simply the ammonia that is stripped off the ammo acids from excess protein If 6EWARE Of THE POG SHORT RIBS THIS IB A SPECIAL WHEN M2U EAT CHINESE DPfoSON HUNGRY A3AIN" IN HALF AN MOUR.

Questions of general interest will be discussed in future columns. BUGS BUKNY YA'LL GET A BIG KICK OUT O' HE'LL ENTERTAIN YER FRIENDS' LET'S HEAR. J C'MON, HM CLYDE. TALK.'
