You might have heard of the famous Looney Tunes cartoon character, the Tasmanian Devil, also known as Taz. He has a huge appetite like real Tasmanian devils, which eat large amounts of food every day. They prefer to eat rotten dead animals. They also eat sick animals, especially ones that live on farms. Unlike real ones, Taz stands on his back legs and is brown. Real Tasmanian devils walk on all four limbs, and they are black.
