Description: The Tasmanian Devil ( Sarcophilus harrisii ) is the largest of the Dasyuridae , strictly protected and endangered . They are primarily nocturnal and opportunists feeding mostly on carrion . As the attitude towards the Devil has changed and it is now a mascot and icon of Tasmania , it is threatened not so much be people but by the deadly , incurable cancer disease DFTD , which can exterminate whole regional populations in a very short time . To protect the species from extinction , zoo s , game parks and isolated populations on islands are of big importance . Australia , Tasmania , 2006
