Crown Princess Mary, of Denmark
Famous for becoming a royal celebrity when she married Prince Frederik of Denmark. Not to mention all the terrific work she does for charity.

And now let's get back to the Tasmanian Devil...
A much-loved icon of Tasmania, the Tasmanian devil is probably the most famous Tasmanian.
How did this creature become so famous internationally? That would be mostly due to "Taz", the Looney Tunes cartoon character version of this unique animal. When I think of Taz, what I remember most of all is how he would spin madly devouring everything in his path.
Well the real Tassie Devil is not quite like that. However, like Taz, the real creature does have powerful jaws and a strong bite.
A marsupial (like the Tasmanian tiger), the Devil has black fur with white patches. It resembles a small but well-built dog.
I took this photo outside the Trowunna Wildlife Park. And yes this is an extra large statue, the animal is not that humongous.
