Species 10 - Tasmanian Tiger Name of species/sub species: Tasmanian tiger Thylacinus cynocephalus Description of exhibit: The exhibit is an old, mesh fence exhibit with a covered top. The exhibit, which can be divided in two by a central partition was originally built in the 1980s for a pair of Puma. It has a high amount of vegetation and an internal den with a wooden floor, and concrete walls. Heating was installed in the den prior to the conversion of this exhibit to house Tasmanian tiger. Details of animals at the zoo: The Millennial Zoo London currently has one Tasmanian tiger. He is a 9 week old male pup (born 2019) named Arthur (Art) after the Arthur River in Tasmania. Art was born to the original pair of Tasmanian tigers imported by the Millennial Zoo Illinois in 2017. He was rejected by his mother at birth, and hand raised by keepers, before being transferred to the Millennial Zoo London at 6 weeks of age. He is extremely tame and enjoys interacting with his keepers. Intended fate of the exhibit and it’s occupants: Art will move to a new exhibit in 2023, when we build the Australasian precinct. It is our intention to import a female to breed with him when he is aged 18 months; but for now we will be content at exhibiting the only Tasmanian tiger in Europe, and the first Tasmanian tiger in London since 1931. The current Tasmanian tiger exhibit, located on the future site of the European precinct, will be demolished in 2024 when construction on this precinct begins.
