Palaeontologists believe this would have been used to grapple its intended prey, as well as providing it with a sure footing on tree trunks and branches. Thylacoleo carnifex ("pouch lion") is an extinct genus of carnivorous marsupials that lived in Australia from the late Pliocene to the late Pleistocene (2 million to 46 thousand years ago). The two major hypothesized causes are the impacts of long-term climate change (both in the form of higher-frequency extreme weather events and more subtle shifts in temperature regimes, rainfall patterns, etc. Thylacoleo was the largest carnivorous (meat eating) marsupial to have ever lived on earth.

A new study suggests that most of Australia's massive megafauna, like the extinct marsupial lion Thylacoleo carnifex, probably went extinct as a result of climate change, not human activity. (1868). Abst. (1977). In any case, Thylacoleo exited the history books about 40,000 years ago, when the earliest human settlers of Australia hunted its gentle, unsuspecting, herbivorous prey to extinction, and even sometimes targeted this powerful predator directly when they were especially hungry or aggravated (a scenario attested to by recently discovered cave paintings). https://dinoanimals.com/animals/marsupial-lion-large-predatory-marsupial The latter is the subject of conservation biology, since it concerns the global population size of animals.

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.
