So we went looking for it after sunset. We drove very slowly along the mainroads with care. We saw all sorts of animals crossing the roads, and we stopped when they did, blinded by the headlights of the car. One night we saw the Devil. He sat there in the middle of the road watching us.
delighted, , but not really satisfied, so we decided to go to the zoo.
These photos are taken at the Wing's Wildlife Park.
The Tasmanian Devil is a carnivorous marsupial. They emerge from their den at night to wander long distances looking for food,
like road kills.
Tasmanian Devils mate in March and the babies are born in April.The mother has four nipples and her pouch opens backwards. She will have two young when she is two years old, then annually three or four babies for the next three years.
