The Tasmanian devil is back on Australia's mainland after 3,000 years. Conservation groups released 26 of the devils in a nature reserve. The devil is the size of a small dog. It eats large birds and rubbish. It became endangered after an Australian wild dog nearly killed them all. It is not dangerous to humans.

The Tasmanian devils have to find their own food. A conservation group said: "They are free....We've got some basic means of keeping an eye on them, but...now it's over to the devils to do what they do." It said: "This release of devils will be the first of many. We are talking about...a true landmark in history."
