Until you’ve seen Tasmanian Devils in full-on feeding frenzy, it’s hard to imagine such small animals being so ferocious. We arrived at the Wings Wildlife Park in Gunns Plains, Tasmania at feeding time, and we were stunned by how aggressive they are. They’re totally fearless and will stop at nothing to get food away from each other. And when they’re done eating, there is absolutely nothing left. With jaws like a vise, they devour the meat, bones and fur of anything they get their teeth on.
After that jarring display, we enjoyed the more sedate experience of petting wombats and koalas, followed by a trip to Gunns Plains Cave.
We’re still on our cruise, and just a week away from picking up our campervan. We’ve just arrived in New Zealand, and we’re pleased to see them everywhere. smile
