Where does the Tasmanian Devil live in the wild?
The Tasmanian Devil is only found in the wild in Tasmania because the dingo population that lives on mainland Australia wiped them all out over 3000 years ago. There are no dingos in Tasmania so that the Tasmanian Devil can live safely there. However, they have recently been released into a sanctuary in Barrington Tops, NSW, to reintroduce the Tasmanian Devil into mainland Australia.

The Tasmanian Devil prefers to scavenge for its food, but it will kill small animals for food if needed.

What is the collective noun for a group of Tasmanian Devils?
Unfortunately, there is no collective noun.
