Devil Facial Tumor Disease
Tasmanian devils are another mystery from Australia that’s so obscure it will blow your mind. Tasmanian devils suffer from a cancer that usually presents itself only in dogs and it’s so awful that it spreads by merely touching another Tasmanian devil. Many Tasmanian devils suffer from devil facial tumor disease that is so severe it makes the creature die withing days after getting infected. There’s no cure.
Australia houses the most impressive village of 25,000 specimens of light-brown tarantulas. They live as close to each other as possible and this living arrangement is unheard of anywhere else in the world.
