a few more of the first foto’s taken.
Now, this fucking excited me. As a person in which the thylacine is her favorite animal, I often find myself hunting down any and all photographs that I have yet to see. More often than not, I don’t get any hits. Recently, however, I stumbled across a few, and this one in particular made me very excited. The thylacine in this photograph is downright beautiful. And if the information I found that went along with it is true, I’ve seen this thylacine in one of the short films released.
According to the information, this photograph was taken by a man named David Seth-Smith, a British zoologist. This is also the thylacine (supposedly a female, according to the Thylacine Museum.) featured in a London Zoo short film shot in 1930 (in which it was shown feeding on a rabbit), making this thylacine one of the last few living members of its species, and one of the last living ones at the London Zoo.
