My quoll

I don’t mean to be repetitive but I tried publishing my quoll post on “quick post” and the photo didn’t come through.  So have tried again.  This is a picture of the spotted-tail quoll, one of Australia’s nocturnal animals that is not often seen by human eyes.  A cute little fellow but the males can be quite savage with one another in the breeding season.  Quolls are threatened by habitat destruction and increasing urbanisation so every sighting is a thrill.  I saw this little chap in broad daylight while birdwatching near a deep gorge in the tableland country of northern New South Wales.
