EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the last known Tasmanian Tiger, or Thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus), in captivity at London Zoo during the 1910s. The Tasmanian Tiger, also known as the Thylacine, was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times and an apex predator native to the Australian island of Tasmania. Sadly, this remarkable species, with its distinctive stripes and striking appearance, became extinct in 1936. The Tasmanian Tiger was a powerful and elusive creature, roaming the forests of Tasmania for over 40,000 years. However, as European settlers arrived in the late 1800s, the Tasmanian Tiger's population began to decline due to habitat loss, hunting, and competition with introduced species. By the early 1900s, the Tasmanian Tiger was a rare sight, and this photograph is one of the last known records of the species in its lifetime. This image, taken in the zoo's garden or park-like setting, shows the Tasmanian Tiger in a cage, its stripes stark against the green foliage. The society of the time was fascinated by this exotic and mysterious creature, and the zoo provided an opportunity for the public to catch a glimpse of this remarkable animal before it vanished forever. Today, the Tasmanian Tiger remains a symbol of the natural wonders that have been lost to human activity and serves as a reminder of the importance of conservation efforts to protect endangered species.
