A pair of Thylacines (two siblings) at the Washington DC Zoo, c. 1906

The first thylacines at the Washington DC Zoo were brought from Tasmania in 1902. They were a female and her 3 pups. One of the pups was ill and died soon after arrival. The mother died in 1904 and her two surviving pups (a male and female) were on display until their deaths in 1909. The bodies of all four thylacines were donated to the National Museum of Natural History, where they still are to this day.
