Mojo Tasmanian Devil Review:This year(2023) Mojo has released a new Tasmanian Devil, a small marsupial model with a BIG bite. This figure is in the defensive pose, mouth open wide firmly planted on its four adorable little paws. A small figure with a good overall design, the mouth is painted well, but the rest of the paint job seems a little lazy. The eyes could use a glass finish to help them appear more real. Still, I think it is an acceptable little devil model.
Tasmanian Devil Information:Tasmanian devils (scientific name: Sarcophilus harrisii) are carnivorous marsupials native to the island of Tasmania in Australia. They are the largest living carnivorous marsupials, reaching a size similar to a small dog.
Tasmanian devils have a stocky and muscular build, with a round head, powerful jaws, and sharp teeth. They are known for their aggressive and ferocious nature, which is reflected in their name. They emit loud and eerie screeches, growls, and snarls, especially when feeding or feeling threatened.
These creatures are primarily nocturnal, meaning they are most active during the night. They have a keen sense of smell and hearing, and their black fur and distinctive white markings on their chest give them a unique appearance.
Tasmanian devils are scavengers and opportunistic hunters, feeding on a variety of food sources including small mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, and carrion. They have strong jaws and teeth capable of crushing bones, allowing them to consume the entire carcass of their prey.
In recent years, Tasmanian devils have faced a severe threat due to a contagious and deadly disease called devil facial tumor disease (DFTD). This disease has caused a significant decline in their population and poses a major conservation challenge.
Efforts are being made to save the Tasmanian devil population, including the establishment of disease-free captive breeding programs and research into potential treatments or vaccines for DFTD. Conservation organizations and the Australian government are working to protect the species and preserve their habitat.
