About Tasmanian Devils

Tasmanian Devils are small carnivorous marsupials. They can be found in the Island of Tasmania and are of the size of a small dog. They have a stocky muscular build, pungent odour, black fur, powerful jaws and produce extremely loud screeching noises. Their habitat in Australia was made difficult by the increase of wild dog population in Australia. Soon they were only located in the island of Tasmania but a disease spread among the animals and brought down the population of the virus to only 25,000.
