Wow, I had no idea they are around there either.

Your spotting reminded me I had some (blurry) Eastern quoll photos. I've posted them here:

I've only seen spotted quoll (as opposed to spotted-tail quoll, like this one) live in the wild. In Tasmania the spotted-tail quolls have mostly moved into the highlands.

I'm sure I've heard them in the Watagan Mountains, but never sighted. It sure is a shame, enough competition for these guys with feral cats and dogs/Foxes without having to contend with cars also :'(

What a shame this Quoll had been hit :( I'm originally from Newcastle & I didn't even know they were in the area! I'm only just learning about them & would really love to see one.
