[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The tiger quoll (Dasyurus maculatus), also known as the spotted-tail quoll, the spotted quoll, the spotted-tailed dasyure or (erroneously) the tiger cat, is a carnivorous marsupial of the quoll genus Dasyurus native to Australia. With males and females weighing around 3.5 kg and 1.8 kg respectively, it is mainland Australia's largest, and the world's longest (the biggest is the Tasmanian Devil), living carnivorous marsupial and it is considered an apex predator. Two subspecies are recognised, the nominate is found in wet forests of southeastern Australia and Tasmania, and a northern subspecies gracilis is found in a small area of northern Queensland and is endangered.

Photographed at the Tasmania Zoo.

Hello Maurie,
An informative note which, I think, is a very important component of your entry and, although the Tasmanian Devil immediately came to mind, the note and image are very new to me. Thank you and best wishes.
