Tasmanian devil definition and meaning

What is a "Tasmanian devil"?

The Tasmanian devil is a carnivorous marsupial native to the island of Tasmania in Australia. It is known for its stocky build, powerful jaws, and distinctive black fur with white markings on its chest. Tasmanian devils are known for their aggressive and ferocious nature, and they are scavengers that primarily feed on carrion. They have a strong bite and can consume the bones and fur of their prey, earning them the nickname "devil." They are also known for their distinctive vocalizations, including loud screeches and growls. Tasmanian devils are solitary animals that are primarily active at night, and they have a reputation for their strong jaws and ability to fend off predators. They face threats from habitat loss, disease, and human encroachment, and conservation efforts are underway to protect their populations.
