Spotted-tailed Quolls

CREATURE FEATURE

Dr Andrew Claridge, of the NSW OEH Saving our Species program, has invited us to share this 'new release' video with the Atlas of Life community. 

Dasyurus maculatus is listed as 'Vulnerable' in NSW, and 'Endangered' nationally. This species is known by several common names, including Spotted-tailed Quoll and Tiger Quoll.

We know they live here in the Atlas of Life region ... the images below link to two Creature Feature posts from 2015:
