I think the key thing I'm going for is if I say "[blank blank]" and the players hear a short description from someone, they can figure out for themselves that they're Tazmanian Devils without me having to outright say it.

Make them climb trees and call them Drop Bears.

What? Nah. Nobody survives that shit. Nobody common, at least. There's always that guy grampa's cousin's neighbor shared a beer with once. That guy was a certified badass. Well, til he ran into one of those buggers he was. Got away alive, that's better than most folk manage.

Tasmanian devils are probably the only real dire animale

Australians don't have to deal with drop bears we all know how to avoid them. It's the tourists that have to deal with them.

it kind of pisses me off that Tasmanian Devils are so psychotic, they're freaking adorable and I would totally hug one if it wouldn't end with severe bodily injury...

I would rather deal with a cougar or mountain lion than a bloody crocodile. At least its a mammal and I know cats but a croc is completely alien and brutal, there is no remorse.
>>
>>44873402
Crocodile is easier to get away from once your out of the water and if they clamp their jaws without catching you. A man should be strong enough to keep them shut with his arms.
And if you have a tree nearby, well, a croc won't follow you there.
>>
>>44873402
You think mountain lions feel remorse after killing?
>>
>>44868493

It's pretty easy just to have a Tasman running around your setting.

why do the fucking slavs have a name for a near-extinct marsupial on the other side of the world in a tiny part of an english colony?
>>
>>44873411
Mate, have you ever seen a croc in real life? They are fucking massive and quick. I would rather fight a lion and yes Ive seen them in real life too.

>>44873418
No but they are easier to relate to being a mammal than a croc is. There are more signs to look for and ways to get out of the situation.
>>

>question not related to any existing threads or generals
>question nonetheless /tg/ related

OP is fully justified in starting a thread. Sorry if it bumped your FagQuest #74: Text-based Anime Soap Opera Simulator Edition out of the arse end of page 10
>>
>>44873628
They are quick but they rely on surprise. If they don't catch you in the water you have a chance to run away far enough for the croc to decide to not bother. Or simply climb somewhere it can't go.

In most cases you're fucked either way though.

If the lion is going for you, then you are more fucked than if the croc goes for you. Croc does not like running around chasing monkeys. Lion will run around chasing monkeys, in a pack if it has to.

No one.

It's all gore so I won't post it but look up Devil Face Tumour cancer, due to limited gene pool Tasmanian Devils has developed a cancer that they hypodermically inject each other with in the normal course of their fights. It's kind of horrifying.

My favorite is that they call "Black Holes" a much more poetic and in some ways more accurate "Frozen Stars".

That would describe black dwarfs better though, right?

It gets better: the highest peak in Australia is named Mount Kosciuszko, after a Polish national hero.

Frozen actually refers to time, rather than temperature, since the warping of spacetime would make make anything beyond the Schwarzschild radius appear frozen in time to an outside observer.

Almost all the Tasmanian Devils. They're on the edge of extinction because of transmissible cancer.
