It holds the title of the largest predatory marsupial residing on mainland Australia. They are solitary and nocturnal animals, spending most of their time on the ground but are also agile climbers and swimmers. Despite their impressive hunting skills, the tiger quoll is considered endangered due to habitat loss and fragmentation, competition with introduced predators, and diseases.
Conservation efforts are underway to protect these charismatic animals and their habitats, including using wildlife corridors and monitoring programs. Seeing a tiger quoll in the wild is a rare and thrilling experience that is becoming increasingly difficult as their populations continue to decline.
