Information about the Tasmanian Devil:
The Tasmanian Devil is a carnivorous mammal native to the Australian island of Tasmania. When the Thylacine when extinct in 1936 it became the world's largest carnivorous marsupial. It is roughly the size of a small dog, weighing about 18 pounds (8 kg.) Males are usually a little larger than the females. At this time they are only found on the island of Tasmania, although it in the past they were known to inhabit some of the smaller islands nearby. They Tasmanian Devil is mostly nocturnal, hunting for prey around the twilight hours. They do, however, like to sun bathe and are often observed laying on their bellies during the daylight hours. They are good hunters and can take down prey larger than themselves such as smaller kangaroo. They prefer to eat wombats though, but will also feed on roadkill should they find it. Due to habitat loss and an aggressive disease that is nearly always fatal the Tasmanian Devil's numbers in the wild have dropped precipitously and are now considered endangered.
