devils are thought to have gained their name because of the terrible howl
that is heard when they are squabbling over food. This, coupled with the very
red ears would probably have been enough to scare the life out of the first
Europeans to see them whilst camping out in the dense Tasmanian forests.
They have the biting strength of a dog four times their size, easily enough
to crunch through bone, and putting them on a par with hyenas.
This Devil was photographed at the Australian Reptile Park in New South Wales.
Australia is fortunate to have wonderful, unique and iconic wildlife. This site is dedicated to promoting its enjoyment and preservation.
