Tasmanian Devil
The Tasmanian devil is the largest of the marsupials that eat meat. It is a nocturnal animal, lives alone and prefers its own company hence it is a relatively shy animal.
They are found in northern, eastern and central Tasmania, the island state of Australia. Their habitat is wooded countryside, in forests and near the outer suburbs of many towns.
Devils are black with a white mark on the chest and rump, and look similar to a medium sized, solid dog. Their tracks are in a diamond pattern: a single pawprint, followed by two pawprints side by side, and then another single print.
They are classified as vulnerable (close to being endangered) and are completely protected. An epidemic called Devil Facial Tumour Disease is now having a terrible effect on the Tasmanian devil population. Tasmanian Devils are often hit by cars as they feed on road killed animals, and they are losing parts of their habitat due to mans.
