Tasmanian Devil doing laps at Australia Zoo

this little fellow and his friend were doing laps of their enclosures at Australia Zoo when we went on 03/07/2007. it was about 3:30 - 4pm. I'd never seen a live one before, only photos. I thought they were nocturnal. we watched them for about 15 mins. so cute! they'd run around, stop at certain points and sniff the air. I guess they were looking for food? or could smell something in particular. or maybe the onlookers were too noisy for them (though most people were pretty quiet)

http://www.australiazoo.com.au/our-animals/amazing-animals/mammals/?mamm... has some info about them. they're an endangered species, only found in Tasmania now. they had been common on the Australian mainland at one stage (~5000 years ago) but not these days.
