Top 10 Animal Gluttons

7. TASMANIAN DEVIL

Good thing the Tasmanian devil can’t compete in the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest every Fourth of July Joey Chesnut and Kobayashi couldn’t hold a candle to this creature’s pace. The Australian outback native can swallow up to 40 percent of its body weight in just 30 minutes; that’s the equivalent of a human eating 216 hamburgers in the same amount of time! The Tasmanian devil will actually eat to the point that it can barely waddle around, and is particularly fond of anything that smells like flesh. So if you’ve got some old boots or smelly socks, pass them to your left, along with the salt and pepper.

Who fed a vulture anthrax to see if it could digest it!?


And I was anticipating humans to be number 1.

Very interesting. The old saying that you learn something new everyday is definitely true.

Thank you for this beautiful video. I'm now looking up more info on Dillie and your book.

There are a lot of men in our local vegan community. Veganism is for everyone!

I also love rose petals and nasturtiums!

LEt's get back on point. My question is why do children with measles vaccinations still catch measle…

I'm part of this minority of vegan men :-)
