Saturday morning cartoons featured characters like Porky Pig, Pepe LePew, and Taz. Taz’s character was portrayed as a dangerous animal that only had one thing on his mind…. food! In reality, they are characterized by their stocky and muscular build, black fur, pungent odor, extremely loud and disturbing screech, a keen sense of smell, and ferocity when feeding. Growing up I never realized that Tasmanian Devils were even a real animals. I think partially because of the cartoon but to some degree, I think they were just a far off animal from another land.
Tasmanian Devils are endangered species luckily people like Tim Faulkner dedicate their lives to fighting their extinction. Tim is a Tasmanian Devil keeper in Australia. He takes care of animals every day and the animals love him with all their hearts. The babies act as if he is their best friend.
In the video below shows one baby specifically that is so attached to Tim, he follows him everywhere. In return, Tim praises him with warm milk, cuddles, and scratches behind the ears. Besides being great swimmers and excellent tree climbers, Tasmanian Devils also form exceptional bonds, and this furry critter is the perfect proof of just how close they can become.
Tim loves his job and often shares heartwarming videos and photos of his daily life among the devils.
