  • The fur is usually black or coarse brown, often with irregular white patches on the chest.
  • The hearing is its dominant sense, and it also has an excellent sense of smell
  • During the day, Tasmanian devils find shelter under stones, in caves, bushes, old wombat burrows, or hollow logs.
  • Tasmanian devils travel long distances each night in their pursuit of food, sometimes covering as much as 16 kilometres (10 miles)
  • Tasmanian Devils often scavenge dead animals found on roadsides, but they also hunt live prey such as small mammals and birds.
  • They will fly into a maniacal rage when threatened by a predator, fighting for a mate, or defending a meal
  • Tasmanian devils can eliminate all traces of a carcass of a smaller animal, devouring the bones and fur if desired
  • The devil stores body fat in its tail, and healthy devils have fat tails
  • Tasmanian devils do not form packs, but rather spend most of their time alone once weaned

  • Few devils live longer than five years in the wild
