An Eastern Quoll hunts within the bushy scrub of a Tasmanian forest, its dark and spotted  fur providing excellent camouflage.

The eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus: aka Tasmania’s ‘native-cat’) is a medium-sized carnivorous dasyurid (small, ferocious, arboreal) marsupial, native to Australia. It is now only found in Tasmania, where they inhabit rainforest, heathland, alpine areas, and scrub, with preference for dry grassland and forest mosaics which are bounded by agricultural land, particularly where pasture grubs are common.

The Eastern quolls perform a valuable role as a predator. While the main component of their diet is spiders, cockroaches and grasshoppers, these small mammals are also impressive hunters. Their appetite for rabbits, mice and rats helps keep the populations of these pests under control and maintains a natural balance in the ecosystem.
