Did you know Tasmanian Devils were an endangered species? They look so cute but they are actually vicious! They have sharp little teeth and an aggresive behavior, just like me! Tasmanian Devils only exist on the island of Tasmania which is just south of and belongs to Australia. It is also said to have a loud, disturbing, piercing scream, again… JUST LIKE ME! 🙂
Since the late 1990’s Tasmanian Devils have supposedly had Devil Facial Tumor Disease or D.F.T.D, a type of cancer. This is really depressing because it’s a cool, fascinating animal and it’s also Tasmania’s icon or mascot, and if it goes extinct Tasmania will have nothing to be recognized for! The disease is actually quite disturbing!
Poor Tasmanian Devils… if I lived in Australia I would devote part of my life to saving it because it’s a really cool animal! These Tasmanian Devils got this disease from one Tasmanian Devil that got infected by cancer somehow. This is the only cancer from beast or man that is contagious! It is contagious because when the Tasmanian Devils eat they get aggresive and bite each other. So when they bite each other the cancer passes on!
So we should take all the Tasmanian Devils that aren’t infected and take them to some place safe until there is no more cancer or until the new breeds of the devil are immune to the cancer!
