Summary
Leo?s remains were discovered in a remote cave on the Nullarbor Plain. He was a marsupial lion, Thylacoleo, one of Australia?s most extraordinary megafauna (extinct giant animals), thought to have lived approximately 500,000 years ago. This fascinating book recreates Leo?s life in the period leading up to his early and tragic death
