Tasmanian Devils are very fierce animals living in Tasmania. They are so fierce that they fight other Tasmanian Devils continuously. Unfortunately, when they bite each other they transmit a bacteria that causes grotesque tumours to grow in the face, preventing the victim from feeing and leading to starvation.
Scientists have tried a number of ways to combat the scourge of Devil facial tumour disease, thus far without much success. There is a real likelihood that Tasmanian Devils could soon become extinct, victims of their own ferocity.
