Nighttime ScavengerBook - 2009
For many years, people believed Tasmanian devils were cruel and savage beasts with an insatiable hunger for meat that led them to attack any animal they could find even humans. Are these nocturnal scavengers really the monsters people made them out to be? Biologist Nick Mooney wanted to find out. He has spent many years observing the Tasmanian devil in an attempt to discover its true nature. In Tasmanian Devil: Nighttime Scavenger, kids follow Mooney as he tracks these uncommon animals that live only on the island of Tasmania, off the coast of Australia. Large, full-color photos and a narrative format will keep readers turning the pages for more.
