Tiger Quoll (Dasyurus maculatus)
Also known as the Spotted-tail Quoll, Spotted Quoll or Spotted-tailed Dasyure, the Tiger Quoll is a species of carnivorous marsupial found throughout Eastern Australia and Tasmania. Quolls like other carnivorous marsupials are opportunistic feeders and have a wide diet of arthropods, insects, small reptiles, birds, mammals, platypus, marsupials, wombats and other animals. They are also known to scavenge large animals once and awhile. Tiger Quolls are ambush hunters and stalk their prey and will either pin the prey and then bite it or go right for the neck depending on the prey items size is. Tiger quolls are currently listed as endangered as habitat destruction and competition have hurt their population.
