Caption: Falkland Islands wolf (Dusicyon australis), 19th-century illustration. Also known as the Antarctic wolf, it was formerly known as Canis antarcticus. It was endemic to the Falkland Islands and became extinct in 1880. This illustration is Plate 4 from the 1839 volume on mammals ('Part II: Mammalia') that forms part of the multi-volume work 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle'. This work described the animals collected and observed by the British naturalist Charles Darwin during the survey voyage of HMS Beagle during the years 1832 to 1836. This expedition established Darwin's reputation as a naturalist. 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle' was edited by Darwin and published between 1838 and 1843. The volume on mammals was written by British naturalist George Robert Waterhouse.
