The Tasmanian Devil is a carnivorous marsupial that lives in the wilds of Tasmania. It is considered to be one of the world's most ferocious animals (but really they aren’t), and it has been given its name because it makes a loud, roaring noise that sounds like a devil.

The Tasmanian Devil is often portrayed as an evil, savage animal in movies and cartoons. However, this couldn't be farther from the truth. In reality, the Tasmanian Devil is a shy creature that prefers to live alone or in small family groups.

The Tasmanian Devil is an opportunist and scavenger, and its diet consists mainly of meat such as small mammals, birds, reptiles and insects.

The Tasmanian devil is a carnivorous marsupial of the family Dasyuridae. Until recently, it was only found on the island state of Tasmania, but it has been reintroduced to New South Wales in mainland Australia, with a small breeding population.

Tasmanian devil facial tumour disease is an infectious cancer that threatens the largest surviving marsupial carnivore with extinction. After emerging in 1996, it has spread across most of the range of the species, leading to a population decline of more than 60%.    (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/tasmanian devil facial tumer
