Tasmanian devils (Sarcophilus harrisii or Sarcophilus laniarus) live only in Tasmania and are found from the coast to mountains. Their natural habitat is dry bush and scrub land. According to fossils found in Australia, at one time these animals occurred on the mainland, but became extinct about 500 years ago, even before European settlement began. It is believed that the dingo has ousted the Tasmanian devil from Australia.
