Tasmanian Devil

They became extinct on mainland Australia hundreds of years ago. Now the can be found only in Tasmania. They are rather rather small - an adult is as the size of a small dog; but their sounds, so fierce, are intimidating and chilling. Hunted, trapped and poisoned; and with diseases sweeping and killing them regularly, this fearsome creature's existence is now in danger. They may become extinct in the wild.
