Tasmanian devils are nocturnal hunters and feeders. They can hunt by pouncing on smaller mammals such as possums but they are also effective scavengers, eating carrion, or the remains of dead animals: fur, bones, and all.
Tasmanian devils tend to be solitary hunters, although they may feed with other Tasmanian devils. They should not be confused with the Thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger (now extinct), which may have used a pack-hunting strategy for larger prey, although fossil evidence indicates it, too, was usually a solitary hunter. Tasmanian devils do not form packs.
Tasmanian devils have an excellent sense of smell. They are said to have the most powerful bite for their size of any animal.
Tasmanian devils are nocturnal, hunting and feeding at night time.
No. Tasmanian devils tend to be solitary hunters, although they may feed with other Tasmanian devils.
Tasmanian devils became protected by law in June 1941. After this, it became illegal to hunt or trap Tasmanian devils.
Tasmanian devils are nocturnal hunters. This means they hunt or scavenge at night.
Tasmanian devils are nocturnal, so night time is when they hunt and scavenge 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.
Tasmanian devils do NOT migerate!
No. Tasmanian devils are marsupials.
Yes. At night is when Tasmanian devils are most active. They are nocturnal, and so they hunt and scavenge for food at night, rather than during the day.
Tasmanian devils don't interact with other species much except the ones that they hunt, which of course, they hunt and kill for food. They are solitary, so they don't regularly interact with each other.
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 both hunt and scavenge. Why they scavenge when they are effervescent utters as well is not known, but what is known is that, by cleaning up the environment of carrion (dead animals), the Tasmanian devil performs a very useful function.
