A FEAST FIT FOR A QUOLL

Eastern quoll, Dasyurus viverrinus

STATUS: ENDANGERED

We came across this eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus) feeding on a road-hit pademelon in Tasmania. Once widespread throughout southern Australia, there are now no remaining natural populations on the mainland. They are classified as an endangered species as their populations are continuing to fall dramatically.
