Description

I was so sad to find this Tasmanian Devil dead by the road. There aren't many left of this nocturnal, carnivorous marsupial, and they are suffering from a facial cancer that is killing many more. We saw three in captivity in a nature park in Bicheno.

Description

Unfortunately no picture of the animal - I was walking by night and heard a noise of an animal scavenging in a rubbish bin. It was 'rat' sized body (approx 10cms) with a tail about the same length with a dark brush on the end. I went back to get my camera but it had disappeared. I cant think of any other marsupial it might be in this region or with the description.

Description from Wikipedia

The order Dasyuromorphia (meaning "hairy tail") comprises most of the Australian carnivorous marsupials, including quolls, dunnarts, the numbat, the Tasmanian devil, and the recently extinct thylacine. In Australia, the exceptions include the omnivorous bandicoots (order Peramelemorphia) and the marsupial moles (which eat meat but are very different and are now accorded an order of their own, Notoryctemorphia). Numerous South American species of marsupials (orders Didelphimorphia, Paucituberculata, and Microbiotheria) are also carnivorous.
