Adorable Tassie Devil Joeys Pass First Health Check

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
