sixth-extinction:

I was fortunate enough to finally view this beautiful thylacine specimen behind the scenes at the AMNH in New York. I have been trying to view it for quite some time if anyone recalls this post!

This was a female that lived at the Bronx Zoo from 1917 to 1919. She was the last of four thylacines to live there [x]. After her death, the New York Zoological Society donated her body to the AMNH. This individual’s skeleton is also part of the museum’s collection.

Unfortunately, none of the AMNH’s thylacine material is currently on public display.
