Caption

Tango, a captive Tasmanian Devil performs a fear gape or yawn in an enclosure at Taroona, outside Hobart, Australia. This is part of a government insurance programme against the extinction of the species in the wild due to Devil Facial Tumour Disease, a contagious cancer that causes the animals to starve to death. The cancer, one of just a few known to be contagious, is only becoming understood by scientists, but has spread rapidly through the population, resulting in the devil being listed as endangered by the IUCN.
