Tasmania devils are very enthusiastic with biting each other , this creates a major problems since they have been affected by facial tumor disease


the biting just passes in the disease


a multiple institution research project has developed  has developed a vaccine  that actually   cures it 


this has promise , however administering it to the devils is not likely to be easy
