Tasmanian Devils   

1     Be warned: there are devils living in Tasmania, an island southeast of Australia!
 
2     Well, devils in Tasmania will not steal our souls. They were called “devils” by the first European settlers to see them in. It is said the name came from their forceful looks, screeching screams, and bad tempers.
 
3     Tasmanian devils are solitary, nocturnal animals. They have black fur. Sometimes, they have white patches around their chests and rumps. Tasmanian devils are stocky. They measure 30-44 inches long (including their tails of 9-12 inches) and weigh from 9 to 26 pounds. Tasmanian devils are the largest carnivorous (meat-eating) marsupials. Marsupials are unusual mammals. A female marsupial gives birth to her baby at a very early stage. She carries it inside her pouch where the baby grows and completes its development. Aside from Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, koalas, and wombats are also marsupials.
