- A remarkable specimen of
Australian zoology was shown to us a few days ago. Up to the
time of seeing it we thought we were well aquainted with all
the native animals of this region, but it seems the case
otherwise. However the new object of interest exhibited to us,
we believe is exceedingly rare in New South Wales, although by
no means in Tasmania.
- The appellation by which it is
known, namely the tiger cat is certainly a misnomer, as it has
not the slightest affinity in external appearance to the tiger
or cat species. The specimen shown to us is about 8 inches in
height and measures 3 ft 4" from tip to tip, the tail which is
not bushy, being fully as long as the body. The head is
entirely dissimilar from that of the tiger cat, or ounce and is
shaped more like that of a rat, the neck being remarkably
thick. The legs short and not much unlike those of the native
bear, with long claws, no doubt given for the purpose of
assisting the body in climbing. The fur is of no length, harsh
to touch and we should suppose of no commercial value. the
colour is reddish brown with white spots. this strange animal
was hunted down and killed by dogs belonging to Mr Paterson of
Manton's Creek (near Yass) and we are informed that a second
and much larger specimen has been seen by the same person, but
it eluded the chase that was made for it. The skin has been
well dried and temporarily stuffed in order to give an idea of
the creature while alive, but Mr Colls to whom Mr Paterson has
given it, purposes having it stuffed afresh, and as it is a
decidedly interesting contribution to Australian zoology it is
worth any trouble or labour that may be bestowed upon it. Mr
Colls will be happy to show the animal to any person who may be
curious to see it. Yass Courier 26.7.1862.
