FACT
In the mid 1900s, there was a disease was discovered. The disease was called Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD); this disease spread rapidly, and it was a rare, contagious cancer that caused large lumps to form around the animals mouth and head. This made it hard for the infected tasmanian devils to eat, causing them to starve to death. DFTD killed tens of thousands of tasmanian devils.
