"Try to see a Tasmanian devil. ..." Forestier, Tasman Peninsula / Port Arthur. Tip by bdschobel

Try to see a Tasmanian devil. I saw a bunch of them at a hospital for injured ones (hit by cars, mostly). They have the strongest jaws of any land animals, about 10 times the strongest dog! They eat carrion only, but bones, fur, everything. Supposedly a few murder victims have been fed to the devils and completely disappeared. I saw a dead wallaby thrown into a pit with five female devils. Fifteen minutes later, the wallaby was GONE! The ripping and crunching sounds were unforgettable.

Directions: Forestier Peninsula (the same highway that goes to Port Arthur) - North East of Hobart
