The Quoll - Cute Cousin of the Tasmanian Devil

Does this little guy look unfamiliar?  It is a quoll, a rather strange but cute marsupial.  There are six species of quoll all told but they are now considered endangered.

The Northern Quoll is the smallest of the six species and rarely grows longer than thirty centimeters in length. A peculiar feature of the Northern is that after mating the males invariably die and the females are left alone to raise the young. They live mostly on fruit and small vertebrates but despite their size and timid appearance they are happy to scavenge in campsites.

When I was in Tasmania I was obsessed with spotting a Tasmanian Tiger. One night after dusk in the mountains near Cradle Mountain, I saw a Spotted Quoll. They DEFINITELY look like Tigers in those conditions (and when you want them to!)

The Eastern Quolls are also very very cute - they are like hyperactive kittens.
