Tasmanian Devil in danger of extinction

We didn't travel to Tasmania on our Australia trip, but we did see this one at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney. Let me tell you, this is a bizarre creature. It walks with a very stiff-legged gait, making it move in an almost robotic way. It looked like it was fake. It looks like a giant rat, but is a marsupial. Sadly, I just read that Tasmanian Devils are dying off from a horrible facial cancer. So sad!
