This photograph, taken sometime before 1921, shows two thylacines at the Hobart Zoo, the smaller one a juvenile. The thylacine was commonly referred to as the Tasmanian tiger or Tasmanian wolf, yet it was neither indigenous to Tasmania nor directly related to either of its namesakes. In fact, the thylacine was the largest meat-eating marsupial to have existed since the extinction of the Thylacoleo, or so-called ‘marsupial lion.'

Thylacines, the largest modern marsupial predator, seemed from their outward appearance to be a mix of several animals. They had a series of brown stripes in the fur along their back that gave them one of their nicknames, the Tasmanian tiger.
