Re: Did the Tribbles actually die out by the 24th Century?

Come to think of it: Would there not have been some kind of indigenous predator on the Tribbles' homeworld?

IIRC we only have high animal birthrates where smaller birthrates would endanger a species.

So what happened to all the Tribbles on their indigenous homeworld after they had eaten everything there? Did they turn into cannibals?
