*** NEW SERIES ***
If you have just joined us we are on an Australian animal safari for this series. All these photos were taken at Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. If you would like to return to the beginning of the series click here
This photo is of a female Tasmanian Devil. She is a marsupial. A marsupial is an animal where the female carries and feeds their young in a pouch. In fact this female is carrying 2 babies.
You may of heard of the name Tasmanian Devil before. It was made famous by Disney in Looney Tunes. Click here to see. The real Tasmanian Devil is a native of ... you guessed it! ... Tasmania, Australia's most Southern state.
In fact, looking at its cute little pink ears they look quite sweet. Sadly the species is threatened with extinction due to a facial tumour that appears around the face and neck and is quickly fatal. Much research goes into saving this species.
