How Tasmanian Devils Get Their Name

Do you know where Tasmanian Devils live? Tasmanian Devils live in Tasmania, which is an island near Australia, where they get their name.

Tasmanian Devils have powerful teeth, which help them eat rotten food. They also eat dead animals and like to crunch through the bones of their prey.

Tasmanian Devils use their noses to smell rotten animals. They also use their limbs and thick forefeet to run toward their food. Sometimes, the Tasmanian Devils fight each other to get their meals.

Even though they have sharp teeth, they do not harm humans. Most of the time, the Tasmanian Devils are trying to take care of themselves and their family in Australia during their eight-year life expectancy.
