Tassie Devil

A real devil

They might sound scary, but Tasmanian Devils are actually shy creatures which more commonly scavenge dead animals than kill their own prey. The devil can consume an entire animal including bones, fur and scales. They can consume more than 10% of their body weight in one meal! Tassie Devils used to roam the mainland, however can now only be found in the wilds on of Tasmania. 90% of the Tasmanian Devil population has been wiped out by the Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD). Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has been involved in the breeding program, to help save these marsupials from extinction in the wild for over 15 years.

The sanctuary has bred 9 Tasmanian Devils for this important conservation initiative.
