Unless you’re Bugs Bunny, the best chance any of us have to seeing a Tasmanian Devil up close is the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park on the Tasman Peninsula in Australia.

Since the mid-1990s, these marsupials have been facing extinction as the species have been plagued by devil facial tumor disease, a contagious cancer that has decimated the devil population. The Tasman Peninsula and Maria Island are two of the places that a healthy population is being rebred.

These two devils are full grown; they only live about 5 to 6 years. That sound they make is what you might hear at night when a group of devils (they’re scavengers) fight over an animal corpse – and of course with each other.
