Tasmanian Devil Pups Born In The Wild After 3,000 Years

Due to a contagious malignancy that starts as a tumor on the face, more notably on the snout, and then spreads to the rest of the animal’s body, the Tasmanian devil has been in risk of going extinct for many years. This happens for a number of reasons, including fighting and mating.

Having said that, the news today is all positive for animal lovers and conservationists since it was discovered that seven new pups were born in mainland Australia, more than 3,000 years after they had vanished from the area.

According to the non-profit organization Aussie Ark, the small demon infants were born at the Barrington Wildlife Sanctuary, a 1,000-acre location in New South Wales.

They were murdered by dingoes, a breed of wild dog that arrived in the area and imprisoned them to the Tasmanian island, in addition to the malignancy known as Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD), which has annihilated practically the entire population of Tasmanian devils.

After a previous study involving 15 animals, Aussie Ark found small marsupial pups in their mothers’ pouches and released them back into the wild on mainland Australia in September 2020, bringing the total number of Tasmanian devils on the continent up to 26.

Members of the pro-animal group claim that the critters had successfully reproduced a few months after their release.

They are characterized as having the size of a shelled peanut while being the biggest carnivorous marsupial in the world. Undoubtedly wonderful news.

“Until it came time to intervene and officially announce the birth of our first wild puppies, we had been observing them from a distance. What a time that was! Excitedly, they announced from Aussie Ark.
