How does a Tasmanian devil breathe?

Tasmanian devils breathe in the same way that humans do. The air travels through the mouth/nose, down the trachea, through the bronchi, through the bronchioles, and into the alveoli, which make up the lungs. In the alveoli, some of the oxygen in the air that was breathed in is given to the blood stream, and the air gains the carbon dioxide that the blood stream wants to get rid of. The new air travels backwards through the places that I wrote above and is breathed out the mouth.

Why do Tasmanian Devils live in caves and holes?

Tasmanian devils are usually solitary, and are nocturnal or crepuscular (twilight) in their habits. So it would make sense that they would seek effectively well hidden dens during the day. They sometimes like to rest in sunlight. This may be only part of the answer, but Tasmanian devils give off a horrendous stench, and they don't have to release the scent as do skunks. As a result, it would probably have been a survival strategy and there would have been some evolutionary pressure for them to suppress their scent in whatever way possible to avoid predators.

They never attack people, but will certainly defend themselves, and they have exceptionally powerful jaws.

Do Tasmanian devils make good parents?

Yes. The female Tasmanian devil is a dutiful parent. Tasmanian devils are marsupials, and the females have a pouch in which the young are carried for around 100 days, or just over three months. During this time, the baby, or joey, feeds entirely off mothers' milk. The pouch faces backwards, like that of the wombat, so it does not get filled with dirt while the animal is digging. When the young become too old to carry in the pouch, they are transferred to a den for several more months until they are fully weaned.
