Why do Tasmanian devils only live in Tasmania?

They previously lived in Tasmania as well as on the Australian mainland. However, they became extinct on the mainland 3,000 years ago. Currently, the Tasmanian devil is the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world. The reason Tasmanian devils now live only in Tasmanian is because they were essentially forced out by the dingo. The Aborigines came over from Asia many thousands of years ago, and brought this non-native carnivorous mammal with them. Both animals were at the top of the food chain, but the dingo was larger and stronger, and proved too much competition for the Tasmanian devil.
