Curious Tasmanian devil investigates falling snow

THE arrival of snow would send most of us scurrying inside where we can watch the dazzling display next to the fireplace with a warm cup of tea in our hands.

Not the Tasmanian devil though. They're made of sterner stuff!

One of the island's iconic native residents was caught meeting winter head on when it was filmed wandering through the snow at a nature reserve on Cradle Mountain National Park.

The adorable marsupial seemed more curious than perturbed as it sniffed the air as flakes fell around it.

However, once it made up its mind, the devil made a quick getaway for a warmer environment.
