At last I'm the first to write a comment, (even though it's for my own teaser)!

I hope you enjoyed this bit of Australiana!

Very, very fun! I didn't see that coming at all... I had some really odd ideas, but anyway, that was awesome and keep 'em coming!

What is this, a trick?

Very clever... you got me! I assumed you meant the Tasmanian Devil (thought perhaps it's sometimes called a tiger) and assumed they eat insects which may make them carnivore, but insects aren't exactly meat. Anyway, I was sure wrong!

I've never heard of a Tasmanian Tiger, so I though, "Because it doesn't exist!" Who knew I would be so close?

Good teaser!

Oh, and you may want to correct your sentence. I don't think it's grammatically correct. It should be something like: The Tasmanian Tiger, although classified as a Carnivore, does not eat meat. Why?

Unravelled...you may want to correct your spelling. It's thought...and the sentence is grammatically correct.

Not from Tasmania, but Victoria is close enough that I didn't even need to look at the answer to know it

They have found a contageous disease thats rampaging through the tasmanian devils, too - 100% kill rate.

Cloning the tiger wasn't successful last time they tried, though.

I thought it meant the "Tasmanian Devil", and I thought it was because it is not real.
