Most Dangerous Animal in the World
The tasmanian devil is found exclusively on the island of Tasmania in Australia. They are the largest species of marsupial though they still only grow to about 1624 pounds at the most. These little guys are extremely temperamental. When they feel threatened, which is often, they bare their teeth, charge, fight, and make an incredibly creepy screaming sound. Which is how they got their name. They will attempt to fight and kill nearly anything, even each other at times.
