Foxes can be predators of young Tasmanian devils. They are no match for an adult Tasmanian devil.

Foxes do not catch adult Tasmanian devils. Healthy adult Tasmanian devils are too stocky and large for a fox to attack. However, foxes are a threat to sick adults and young joeys (baby Tasmanian devils).


No. People do not eat Tasmanian devils.


Yes. While fixes are responsible for eating Tasmanian devil joeys, adult Tasmanian devils will themselves attack and eat foxes. The presence of Tasmanian devils in Tasmania is one reason why fox numbers have not proliferated ... yet.


Tasmanian devils do not eat plants. They are completely carnivorous.


Yes: Tasmanian devils eat rabbits, as well as other small mammals.


Tasmanian devils do not eat other live Tasmanian devils. They will, however, readily feed on the carcass of another Tasmanian devil that has died.


Tasmanian tigers, more correctly known as Thylacines, do not eat Tasmanian devils. Thylacines are extinct. Prior to the Thylacine's extinction, the two species were both at the top of the food chain, and Thylacines did not eat Tasmanian devils then, either.


Foxes compete with Tasmanian devils for their food. Also, foxes have been known to prey on young, helpless Tasmanian devil joeys.



The only things that might regard Devils as a food source would be introduced species such as dogs and foxes, and then, only juvenile Devils. The Tasmanian Devil has no natural predators.


Tasmanian Devils live in Tasmania, the island state of Australia. Their habitat is coastal heath, open dry sclerophyll forest and mixed sclerophyll-rainforest. Tasmanian Devils eat snakes, birds, rodents, lizards and wallabies. A lot of insects, larvae and especially carcasses or dead animal bodies are eaten by the Tasmanian devils. Mainly Tasmanian Devils eat whatever is available.


The Tasmanian devil has no natural predator. However, introduced foxes and dogs cause a problem for young Tasmanian devils.


Dingoes do not eat Tasmanian devils. There are no dingoes on the Australian island of Tasmania, and there are no Tasmanian devils remaining on the Australian mainland. When the two species co-existed on the mainland, scientists do not believe that dingoes took on Tasmanian devils as predator to prey, but that the two species were competitors for food.


No. Apart from the fact that wallaroos are not found in Tasmania (the habitat of the Tasmanian devi), wallaroos are too large for Tasmanian devils to hunt. If a Tasmanian devil found a dead wallaroo, it would certainly eat it.


Humans should save Tasmanian Devils because they eat the sick and dead animals.


The Tasmanian devil's only native competitor for food is the quol. However, the quoll is a much smaller dasyurid, and is certainly not a competitor for the carrion which Tasmanian devils eat. Foxes have been introduced fairly recently into Tasmania, and they, too, are competition for the Tasmanian devil.


No. Tasmanian devils feed on prey smaller than themselves, or on carrion. the only time a Tasmanian devil will eat one of its own kind is if it's already dead.


Tasmanian devils do NOT migerate!


No. Tasmanian devils are marsupials.


Yes. Tasmanian Devils are carnivorous, and they are members of the dasyuridae family, meaning the carnivorous marsupials.Tasmanian devils eat a variety of small prey such as snakes, rodents, insects, larvae, birds, fish and mammals such as small wallabies and wombats. Tasmanian devils are also scavengers, meaning they eat carrion (dead animals and road kill).


There is evidence that dingoes eat Tasmanian Devils, if presented with the opportunity. Tasmanian Devils may only be found in Tasmania now, but fossil evidence indicates they were once found throughout the Australian mainland. It is believed that the arrival of the dingo from Asia caused the extinction of both the Tasmanian Devil and the Tasmanian Tiger from the mainland.


If there were stoat in Tasmania, which there are not, it is likely that the Tasmanian devil would eat them, if the opportunity arose. Tasmanian devils favour small mammals, but the stoat could possibly be too quick and fierce to be caught.


Tasmanian devils are nocturnal eaters, hunting and scavenging for food at night.


Of course Tasmanian devils breed. If they didn't, there would be no Tasmanian devils left today. Tasmanian devils are mammals, which are vertebrates. All vertebrates breed.


Tasmanian devils are predators. Within their ecosystem, they are apex predators, meaning they have no natural predators. However, Tasmanian devil joeys can be taken by introduced predators such as foxes (only recently introduced) and wild dogs.
