Tasmanian Devils in pre mating rituals, Valentine's Day 2008

Captive Tasmanian Devils get sexy at Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park, near Taranna, Tasmania, Australia. This young male and female were going through the pre mating motions, wrestling, biting, snarling. I don't think they actually copulated while I was there, but it was a close run thing - the male did sit on the female. ....Most of the devils I photographed over the last week were either recovering from injuries, or orphans, seperated from parents suffering from the Tasmanian Devil Facial Tumor Disease, which is a contagious cancer.
