A Tasmanian wildlife park owner wants to establish a big tassie devil.

The owner of the Launceston Lakes Wildlife Park on the West Tamar, Dick Warren, is pursuing a $2 million plan to create what he describes as Australia's largest tasmanian devil.

The aim is to develop an attraction to bring more people to Launceston and raise awareness about the facial tumour disease which has cut the number of devils in the wild.

Mr Warren says 'The Big Devil' would be quite impressive.

"This animal is 19 metres to the tip of the ears, 35 metres long," he said.

"It's got an interpretation centre in the centre of it that you can walk out through its neck and up onto its tongue and look down through the Valley."
