[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Spotted-tailed Quoll (Dasyurus maculatus)is sometimes known as the Tiger Cat. It is the second largest of the world's surviving carnivorous marsupials, with males measuring up to 130cm long and 4 kg in weight. They are found on the east coast of Australia in cool temperate rainforests and wet sclerophyll forest and coastal scrubland. The spotted quolls eat mice, possums, reptiles, injured or small wallabies, insects and birds.

This little fellow was photographed at Walkabout Creek in Brisbane where he was looking somewhat angry and in this photo the name Tiger Cat seems appropriate.

Hello Lyndall
Crikey..what a perfectly titled post!!
Very well captured with super sharp details..(I may have used a longer lense though!)
A very good note as well detailing an animal I have never heard of before.
Thanks for this one.

Great photo, this little guy looks really scary. Very good sharpness and POV.


What a little rotter, I can hear its shrill roar from here. Godd composition and all round top shot.


  • Great

Hello, Lyndall.
First of all, a warm welcome to TN. : )
In your first month on this site, I think you have managed to post a first on the quoll. Congratulations!
What a great moment caught, with the mouth WIDE open, spit and all. Our friend there does look a little bent out of shape.
A very interesting and unusual animal for us.
TFS. : )
