On mainland Australia, Devil Ark is the largest conservation breeding program for the Tasmanian Devil.
We just learned something new about the tasmanian devil… they're SUPER cute as babies!
Just look at the pic (above) of a little Tasmanian Devil joey drinking from a bottle!!
Every little Devil is a gift because there's a highly contagious disease called Devil facial tumor disease (DFTD).
DFTD could lead to the extinction of of the Tasmanian Devil in the next 20 years!
So these little guys are just that much more precious!
There are over 120 Devils at the Ark and they hope to have 360 by 2016!
Good luck with the breeding! Let's keep these cuties around for future generations to "AWW" at!
