And of course, we cannot forget the most famous animal in Tasmania - The Tasmanian Devil! The Devil is a carnivorous marsupial, found in the wild only in Tasmania. It is the size of a small dog, characterized by a stocky and muscular build, black fur, pungent odor, extremely loud and disturbing screech, keen sense of smell, and ferocity when feeding. Despite the rotund appearance, devils are capable of surprising speed and endurance, and can climb trees and swim across rivers.
