Frederik & Mary go to the zoo

 border=Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary visited the four newly arrived Tasmanian Devils given to the Copenhagen Zoo as a christening gift to Denmark's newest prince. The small carnivorous marsupials were given by the state government of Tasmania, Mary's Australian home state, to mark the Oct. 15 birth of the couple's firstborn, Prince Christian.
