Description

Welcome Tasmanian devils to the Zoo. Four Tasmanian devils arrived from Healesville Sanctuary in Australia on December 18. They have been behind-the-scenes getting used to their new home, and now they are ready to make their big debut.

The Lobo Men's Basketball team will be present for the ribbon cutting with Hugh Greenwood, guard for the Lobos and Tasmanian native. Discovery stations and light refreshments will also be available. Zoo guests visiting on December 30 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. can use the codeword "DEVIL" for one free child admission for every paying adult.

Visit their exhibit, located in Australia near koalas and wombats.

Price

Included with admission.
