Introduction

Animal: Tasmain Devil

Recherch locations: Tasminia, Island close to Austrailia


Why this animal?

I chose this animal because its part of the dog family and the island that they are found is really close to Austrailia (Tasmainia). I have family in Australia. They also seem really interesting, when they get really mad their ears turn red. My brother did a report on Tasmainian Devils and when i was helping him type and look at pictures i thought they were really cool. I would like to learn more about them and about the things that they do. I also want to learn if you can find them in other places than Tasmainia.
