The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) (Tasmanian Department of State Growth) is the state institution responsible for the development, maintenance and management of the zoological collections of Tasmania. The collections are the largest for Tasmanian fauna in the world, and represent a wide array of Tasmanian animals, ranging from shells of the tiniest micro-molluscs to giant squid and the skeletons of large whales. These specimens represent more than 150 years of museum acquisitions.
