A few of my favourite things..

Spotted Tailed Quoll



This carnivorous marsupial is about the size of a large domestic cat.  Although this one looks ferocious, it was actually… yawning.  He’s clearly bored by the paparazzi.

  1. Hahaha))) I thought so! When I first saw the photo I thought “It’s yawning, little monster is yawning” 😀

    No he’s saying “My, what BIG teeth I have”. Very cute little critter.

    Fee 🙂

  3. If he looks this mad when he’s yawning, I’d hate to see him when he’s really mad!

  4. I think he would have a nasty little bite. This looks like it would be an egg thief…

  6. Inquisitorial, well discerned! You’re “little monster” made me laugh: I’ve not thought of quolls in quite that light before, but.. it fits 🙂

    Fee, nah… I expect he overheard me telling the Chicklette that his nose was too bulbous for him to be cute. 😉

    Michaela, mmmm – they don’t ever look especially friendly.

    Burstmode, quite right on both counts! They kill their prey by biting behind or on the head, and they do sometimes eat eggs.

    Vimal, thanks 😀

  7. Well, I think he is cute!! Delightful, in fact 😉 But, I don’t believe he would fit in my garden lol!!

  8. Amanda, perhaps… perhaps you’re right. Not quite the ornament for a graceful lady’s garden 😉
