Four Tasmanian devil joeys had their first visit to the vet at Monarto Zoo, in South Australia, on September 19.
‘’Mum Thumbelina enjoyed a short rest while the squirming joeys were weighed, microchipped, and had their teeth, digits, and general health checked,’’ said a spokesperson for Monarto Zoo.
The joeys weighed in at a healthy 945g, 930g, 900g, and 835g, respectively.
Monarto Zoo Keeper Simon Dower said he was very happy with the joeys development.
“Raising these joeys in a behind-the-scenes environment is essential to prepare them in case an opportunity arises to reintroduce devils into the wild,” Simon said. Credit: Monarto Zoo via Storyful
