The Tasmanian Devil is the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world (Males weigh about 18lbs.) and is the iconic symbol of Tasmania. It was declared an endangered species by the Tasmanian government in 2008  due to the rapid decline in its numbers since the 90's from a nonviral, but transmissable facial cancer. smithsonianmag.com  #Tasmanian_Devil #Tasmania #smithsonianmag

Tasmanian Devil - I lived in Tasmania for two years and saw these at a zoo there. I was told they have jaw power proportional to a great white shark -- they bite into you and you can't pry their jaws open.

Numbers of the Tasmanian Devil have been reduced by 80% since 1996. Because of limited genetic diversity on the island, they have developed a type of cancer that is rapidly leading the species towards extinction. (Jurgen & Christine Sohns / FLPA / Minden Pictures)
