With regard to excellence, it is not enough to know, but we must try to have and use it.
1: They are not brown, rather a distinctive black and white
2: They don't spin.
3: They do slobber and sound like the Devil himself.
4: They stink when stressed.
5: They prefer eating dead stuff that they've found rather than the hard yakka of finding it themselves.
6: The first Tasmanian settlers ate Tasmanian Devil, which they described as tasting like veal. Given their protected status, I doubt anyone is out there gobbling them up now.
This particular Tassie Devil was Henry and Ezra's favourite of the mob of them at ZooDoo last Friday.
