Two Litters of Endangered Tasmanian Devils Born / Taronga Western Plains Zoo


Taronga Western Plains Zoo is pleased to announce the arrival of two healthy litters of Tasmanian Devil joeys. According to keepers, this is one of the most successful years to date for the Zoo’s Tasmanian Devil conservation breeding program.

The first litter of three joeys arrived on 19 March to mother Lana. Keepers were recently able to take a close look at each joey and confirm their sex (two males and one female). Another female, Pooki, birthed four joeys more recently on 19 June, which are yet to emerge from the pouch — via ZooBorns
