San Diego, California - The San Diego Zoo is unveiling the newest members of the Australian Outback: four Tasmanian devils.
The animals arrived from the Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Australia earlier this month; after completing a mandatory 30-day quarantine, the Tasmanian devils will now be visible to the public.
There will be a brief ceremony at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 24, that dignitaries from Tasmania and Australia will attend, after which the new Tasmanian devil exhibit will officially be unveiled to the public.
The Tasmanian devil exhibit is part of the recently opened Conrad Prebys Australian Outback, a 3-acre exhibit home to many Australian animals including more than 20 Queensland koalas. Australian Outback also includes a variety of other pouched mammals such as wombats and wallabies and 23 species of Australian birds.
