Zac Efron has been delighting his Instagram fans with his travel photos as he jets around Australia to film his Netflix series, Down to Earth.

His biceps bulged as he gingerly handled the marsupial around its waist to place it into its enclosure.

The High School Musical star wrote in the caption: ‘Devil down under.’

He also featured in a post shared by Aussie Ark alongside his Down to Earth co-host Darin Olien, where the pair were seen each holding up cards that showed images of Devils, one named Manu and the other called Padfoot.

Zac’s younger brother Dylan, who is working on the show behind-the-scenes, was also at the sanctuary filming the Netflix series.

He posted a photo of himself carrying the animal and wrote in the caption: ‘I thought I knew about Tasmanian devils… but the Looney Tunes were way off.’ 

Dylan explained that the endangered marsupials are ‘pivotal scavengers’ that ‘play a key part in the ecosystem,’ before going on to thank the sanctuary for their work.
