Long ago, some people were afraid of Tasmanian devils. Maybe it's because they made weird noises at night, especially while they were eating.
The early European settlers in Tasmania called them devils, so that's why they are still known as Tasmanian
devils (or Tassie devils) today.
reality, the Tasmanian devil is not scary. It's no bigger than
a small dog, and young devils can be very cute. On the other hand,
devils have sharp teeth and powerful jaws, and they can bite –
hard. So, if you ever meet a devil, be careful and keep your distance.
