The San Diego Zoo recently welcomed four Tasmanian devils to its Australian exhibit. They’re the only Tasmanian devils on exhibit in a zoo in America, so it’s a pretty cool experience to see them in person. They’re nocturnal animals so they sleep while the zoo is open and visitors come by, but I got lucky enough during my latest visit to see one of them move around a bit. I know these photos are technically not “macro” but this is as close as I can get to a Tasmanian devil, and that’s pretty close.
Here he is waking up from his morning nap.
He then got up to get a drink. Check out those claws. They’re made for digging.
He went back to lay down after a few minutes.
And then he looked up right at the camera. Pretty cute face if you ask me.
