Tasmanian Devil

Series of measured side elevation illustrations of the Tasmanian Devil

The Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) is a heavyset marsupial carnivore named after Tasmania, the island state located off the south coast of Australia— which happens to be this marsupial’s only native habitat. The ‘devil’ part of its name comes from its bad temper and growl, resulting in a menacing expression. Sharing resemblance to that of a bear, the Tasmanian Devil has a large head, bushy tail, and set of strong teeth like that of a hyena. The Tasmanian Devil’s coat is black with white markings on its chest mainly, but sometimes can be found on its sides.

Marsupials are mammals characterized by the pouch the mother has for raising and protecting her young. Marsupials are most commonly associated with Austrailia, where Kangaroos and Koalas are found, but marsupials, specifically the opposum, are also found in North, Central, and South America.
