The Devil Does Not Wear Prada

The Tasmanian devil is the emblem of - guess what - Tasmania and one of its exclusive animals. Taz, found in the Looney Tunes cartoons, is probably the most famous Tasmanian devil in the world. We were fortunate enough to come across one in nature (a real one, not Taz!). It was somewhere between Launceston and Scottsdale. It looked like a big cat. This is quite a rare privilege to be able to approach one. If you are too impatient, the safest way to see a Tasmanian devil is to visit the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park, located on the Tasman Peninsula 75 kilometres north of Hobart. The park contains a dozen devils. Check the schedule to be sure to attend the Tasmanian devil feeding. Enjoy the loud and disturbing roar and see the aggressive side of the little marsupial. The existence of this park is essential for the survival of the species. The Tasmanian devil is threatened with extinction due to a facial cancer which has already killed half of the population. The park is also home to other different animals. Approaching and walking among kangaroos is always a unique moment (if you are not Australian of course)!
