A Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii)lazes in a hollow in its exhibit at the Featherdale Wildlife Park in northern Sydney, in New South Wales, Australia.
The Tasmanian devil cannot be mistaken for any other marsupial. Its spine-chilling screeches, black colour, and reputed bad-temper, led the early European settlers to call it The Devil. Although only the size of a small dog, it can sound and look incredibly fierce. It is the worlds largest surviving marsupial predator / carnivore.
