Hey guys, Blue Bear and Penguin here.

We were watching Jeopardy! today and the Final Jeopardy question was the best possible category – Animals! The question was about which animal, named after an island, has the hardest pound-for-pound bite of all. The answer, of course, was the tasmanian devil. He’s a tough guy! Did you know they can even consume bones, and often do just that! Yikes! They tend to scavenge more than hunt, but you still wouldn’t want to get bit by one of these guys. However, despite their toughness and strength, they are extremely cute! Check it out.

Penguin here.

On our bandicoot post, Blue Bear and I mentioned the possibility of posting a Tasmanian devil. We were curious to know if Taz from Looney Tunes in any way resembled one.

Baby Tasmanian Devil

I’d say that they Taz doesn’t really look much like a Tasmanian devil although Tasmanian devils do have large, carnivorous teeth like Taz. They’re also both very cute. So, just as Crash Bandicoot doesn’t really look much like a bandicoot after all, neither does Taz truly resemble a Tasmanian devil.

Now, how cute is this baby Tasmanian devil here? He looks so soft and cuddly. I love his little nose and pointy ears. What a cutie.
