The notorious Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) used to be found throughout Australia, but they are now limited only to Tasmania. A stocky nocturnal animal, the Tasmanian Devil can measure up to 30cm at the shoulder. They have black fur with a distinctive patch of white on the chest. Tasmanian Devils can be found in eucalypt forest, scrublands, woods and pasture, where they hunt or scavenge for animal prey, usually wallabies, possums and wombats.
Tasmanian Devils were so named by European settlers who were unnerved by the loud guttural screams, coughs and growls that the creatures utter when they gather to eat their prey. Devils have enormously strong jaws and will crunch up their prey, bones, fur and all. Unfortunately Tasmanian Devils are currently threatened by an infectious facial cancer, and are categorized as ‘threatened’.
