Latin Name: Sarcophilus harrisii

Locality: Tasmania.

Largest of the carnivorous marsupials, this powerfully built animal is the size of a small dog with small eyes set in a short, broad head with strong jaws and well-developed teeth. It is covered in black fur, usually with white patches on the neck and rump with the muzzle and small rounded ears sparsely haired. The Tasmanian Devils limbs are short with strong claws.

There is terrible facial disease that has wiped out 80-90% of Tasmanian devils. This is a facial cancer that can be passed from devil to devil through biting.

Fact: Tasmanian devils young are called joeys and when born are only as big as the head of a matchstick.
