New Zoo Praha exhibit features Tasmanian Devils as main attraction

By  | 

The Prague zoo inaugurated a new exhibition called the Darwin Crater with over 20 species of Australian fauna, with Tasmanian devils as the main attraction, today.

Due to the current coronavirus lockdown rules, the daily number of visitors to the Prague zoo is limited to 8,500 people. As the number was already reached at 13:00, it had to be closed.

As a result, the opening ceremony with Prague Mayor Zdenek Hrib (Pirates) took place without the public.

The Prague zoo gained the Tasmanian devils right from Tasmania as the second zoo in Europe.

Darwin Crater has an area of 4,600 square meters. It was built for 18 months and the project cost 78 million crowns.
