River is the adorable protective Mum of this yet to be named Tasmanian Devil joey at The Australian Reptile Park! The Tasmanian Devil enclosure is a key attraction at Australian Reptile Park with babies often used in photo sessions for the public to enjoy a cuddle experiencing their lovable side when the joeys are still young enough to handle!
There are only 10% of Tasmanian devils left in the wild, 90% have vanished due to the deadly Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD). There is no cure. There is no vaccination. To ensure an insurance population of healthy, genetically diverse devils to be released in the wild in disease-free areas, Australian Reptile Park is supporting Devil Ark’s crowd funding campaign to double in size to breed more cancer free devils, guaranteeing their survival.
