The Tasmanian Eastern Quoll is not the kind of animal that someone would drape across their shoulders, just as the Tasmanian tiger (Thylacine) would never have been classed as a 'pet'. Both are/were wild animals and have many links in their species and demise.
Both are beautiful animals shrouded in mystery.
Eastern quolls once occured on mainland Australia, they are now considered extinct on the mainland. The species, fortunately, is widespread and locally common in Tasmania. It is found in a variety of habitats including rainforest, heathland, alpine areas and scrub.
