Life-history details are provided for the male thylacine from Tyenna, exhibited in Mary Roberts' Beaumaris Zoo, Hobart, from 1911 to 1915. The fine specimen attracted the interests of scientists, photographers and the general public alike. A motion picture film was taken of the animal whilst eating, and a plethora of still photographs - making this the most photographed thylacine in captivity. Included among these are the sequence of five photographs taken by Harry Burrell involving this thylacine eating a chicken. Carol Freeman (2005), prompted by inconsistent, unpublished comment by Norman Laird, has suggested that these Burrell photographs probably involve a manipulated museum mount, and were likely taken at Burrell's property at Manilla, New South Wales. Freeman's suggestion is challenged through an analysis of the caged environment and the thylacine, as contained in these photographs, alongside recently discovered, unpublished comment by Burrell himself, indicating that the photographs were taken at Beaumaris Zoo, Hobart. While correcting some of Laird's comments on the Burrell photographs, the occasion is also taken to correct Laird's (1968) claim, that thylacine skins were sent to London to be made into waistcoats.
