Tasmanian Devils: Life Cycle
devil breeds around March, it takes 31 days after mating for the young to be
born. The female has about 20-30 live young which weigh about 0.18-0.24 grams.
Unfortunately there is only room in the pouch for 4 devils but usually only 2-3
actually stay in the pouch. The other young devils are usually eaten by their mother.
The young stay in the pouch for about 105 days. The young stay with their mum
outside of the pouch for about 5-6 months then they fend for themselves. They
mate for the first time at the end of their second year. The average life span
for a devil is approximately 6 years; they would probably live longer in
