Paddle 'challenges many conventional ideas about the species and the causes of its extinction'. While acknowledging that he has 'stood unashamedly on Eric Guiler's shoulders', the book often concentrates on the differences in interpretation between the two (although he also makes the point that there are few differences in their views on thylacine anatomy, physiology and behaviour).
