Don't forget their lovely trait of spreading face-cancer by chewing each others' faces.  Damn things will also eat their way right into a body and eat their way back out.

A wolverine would still kick its ass.

I was led to believe that they don't run, but rather, move like a whirlwind. Was I lied to?

The Tasmanian Devil in the video was obviously hand raised by humans. In the wild, they'll take down prey several times their size.

Also, when did they begin speaking English?

I know.  I'd still bet on a wolverine in a confrontation.  Wolverines are just as vicious, but on top of that they're more aggressive and slightly larger.

That's why marsupials (except for the Virginia opossum) are only found in Australia.  Placental mammals out-competed them everywhere the two branches of Mammalia came in contact.

What about the opposums from other states? Didn't all opposums originate  in Ireland?

If anyone is wondering what present to get me for Christmas, you're looking it.

The "why" is more complex than that.  When marsupials are born, they have to navigate from the womb to the marsupium by using their forelimbs to grasp, pull, and crawl.  This means marsupials are limited in how they use their forelimbs, they're locked into having them as graspers instead of having them optimized for prey-catching (cat claws) or optimized for running (hooves).  Placental mammals do not have that limitation.  The opossum is at least partially arboreal, where grasping forelimbs are pretty useful, so that's one reason why opossums are viable in competition with placentals.

I would get a Tasmanian devil and name him "Satan".

what?!? it's no worse than an oscelot named "Babou"!

Wait, you mean the Tasmanian Devil wasn't already on social media?

To be honest it is more of a "blah blah blah yakketty shmacketty" sound they make
