Baby Tasmanian Devils Enjoy Playtime, Internet Falls In Love (VIDEO)

The 'evil' in Tasmanian devil is just an act. This video is undeniable proof of that.

On Monday, Devil Ark, Australia's largest conservation breeding program for Tasmanian marsupials, posted this video of two furry devil babies sleepily drinking from bottles, play fighting, and snuggling -- and within days they've become the Internet's new favorite distraction.

Tasmanian devils are at risk of extinction because of a highly contagious disease that results in devil facial tumors.

The video's YouTube caption states, "Genetic diversity is rapidly diminishing in Tasmania.. There are currently more than 120 devils at the Ark and the goal is to have 360 devils at Devil Ark by 2016."
