No, because you don't "have" thirst in English.

Why "thus" for "dus" wasn't accepted?

"thus" is a perfectly fine word for "dus." It just needs to be added as an alternative translation, so please report it when you get the chance if you haven't. :)

That's what I thought. It didn't accept it so I reported it, but I wanted to be sure.

Why this in no inversions here? Why it is not " Ze hadden dorst, dus ze water dronken"?

For type what you hear exercises you have to type the exact word that is pronounced (in this case two times ze) in other Duolingo exercises you can use either.
