Tasmanian Devil

Marsupial, or Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus laniarius; Ustari. Sarcophilus harrisii) - mammal family carnivorous marsupials; the only species of the genus Sarcophilus. His black paint, huge mouth with sharp teeth, ominous night cries and fierce temper gave the first European settlers to the base of the stocky predator nickname "the devil." Its scientific name is translated from the Greek as "a lover of the flesh».
