The Devils are one of Tasmania's icon animals, thus your absolute touristic must. Although looking cute and harmless, don't be taken in by their adorable appearance. The highlight of Tasmanian wildlife, their fierce night screams are sure to make your holidays unforgettable. Tasmanian devils aren't the type of animals to be stroked, as apart from being wild they've got the strongest jaws among the mammals!

As for the places where you are most likely to meet a few Devils, check Trowunna Wildlife Park, Bonorong Park, and Port Arthur. If you want to get some cuteness on your trip, you should not also miss seeing the small pups, most often on the trees! Since it is something unavailable for adults, devil kids on the trees are a unique experience to watch! Most of the devils breed and mate until March, giving most births in April. This means that gradually throughout October-December, many of them start getting out of their dens, and by Christmas, most of them are out! Could you think of anything cuter for the Christmas season?
