This is a fantastic book. I first got to like Tasmanian devils when I did a project on Australia as a child. i saw one at Steve Irwin's zoo, running like mad round its pen. It was v icious, nasty - all that I expected. Now facial cancer is threatening its very existence. ( )

While one of my primary interests is the thylacine/tasmanian tiger, I do branch out slightly. Saw this book on the shelf and based on David Owen's previous book (on the thylacine) I bought it.Needless to say, I was not disappointed.
This book gets past the mythology that surrounds the tasmanian devil by presenting a overbundance of information about the animal. The book is up-to-date on current events, but also gathers up evidence from the Beumaris Zoo in Hobart from the early 1900's. In many ways more important the the exceptional research is how well the book is written; it just flows nice and smooth.
If you are interested in marsupials in general, expecially so if you like the tasmanian devil & tasmanian tiger/thylacine, I HIGHLY reccomend this book. ( )
