Two Tasmanian devil brothers are now on display at the LA Zoo, one of only four U.S. zoos to host the marsupials.

The two brothers are now housed at one of only four U.S. zoos with Tasmanian devils on display.

Marsupial lovers will be in heaven when they head to the LA Zoo. It is now one of the only four zoos in the U.S. to host Tasmanian devils.

Two brothers, in fact.

Tasmanian devils are endangered, but a collaboration with the Conservation Ambassador and Save the Tasmanian Devil programs led their arrival to Southern California in early December.

They currently live in the Australian section of the zoo, and mammal curator Beth Schaefer joins Take Two to explain more about what visitors will see.
