The Tasmanian Devil is Australia’s largest carnivorous marsupial. To early European settlers, the querulous creature’s black fur and bloodcurdling screeches made it a ‘devil’. Considered a nuisance, it was trapped and poisoned for more than a century.
Today, a devastating condition known as Devil Facial Tumour Disease is threatening the existence of Tasmanian Devils; in some areas more than 90% of the population has been wiped out. Link here to SAVE THE TASMANIAN DEVIL to find out about what’s being done to save this iconic animal
