We all grew up with cartoons. Some of them more advanced than others, but they all taught us some valuable lessons about life in general. We remember Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Porky the Pig, but we never really knew what Taz the Devil was. And imaginary character, perhaps?

Taz is actually a Tasmanian Devil, a small marsupial native only to the island of Tasmania off the coast of Australia. The devil is an iconic animal within Australia, particularly Tasmania; it is the symbol of the Tasmanian National Parks and Wildlife Service, and the former Tasmanian Australian rules football team which played in the Victorian Football League was known as the Devils. But this is not what we are here to talk about. We want to tell you about the incredibly sweet bond one little devil has with its keeper.

This tiny and adorable Tasmanian devil tried so hard to keep up with its human friend, a zookeeper at Tasmania Zoo, in a video uploaded to Facebook on August 29. The sweet little joey then joined one of its equally tiny mates in climbing all over their keeper, when its little legs just couldn’t keep up.

The sweet joey sounds nothing like Taz in Looney Toons; in fact, his cries whenever the human gets too far away are as cute as can get! And he is too adorable to handle!

      Why are the real ones black and the cartoon one is brown?
