A Tasmanian Devil recently received a pacemaker to correct its very slow heartbeat.

Nick, as he’s called, is the second Tasmanian Devil to have this procedure.

After surgery and a two-week recovery, he is back in his exhibit at the San Diego Zoo.

Tasmanian Devils are an endangered species, native to the island of Tasmania, which is part of Australia.

Tasmanian Devils live in forest, woodland and agricultural areas.

They are nocturnal hunters and use their keen senses of smell and hearing to find prey or the remains of deceased animals.
