— In the latest NPR/National Geographic Radio Expedition, NPR's Alex Chadwick reports on the legendary Tasmanian Devil, the ferocious animal named after its nasty disposition and island of origin. Unlike the Warner Brothers cartoon character, the real Tasmanian Devil is a small, black marsupial that walks on four legs. It does have a menacing demeanor and a voracious appetite.
