Quoll

Postby El Lobo » Sat Jul 19, 2014 10:03 pm

Got sent this picture via Twitter of an Eastern Quoll from a captive breeding program. They have been considered as extinct on the Australian mainland since the 1960's.

The state of our wildlife is very sad, at the hands of introduced foxes and cats, hoping to one day see one in the wild.

Scott - I have only ever seen one Tiger Quoll around here, but there are established small breeding colonies close by in Wentworth Falls and Blackheath. The main project for the Eastern Quolls is in Lithgow, again not too far away.

We are "fortunate" to have such a proactive Environment Minister, although he seems to obtain most of his immense environmental knowledge from Wikipedia.

Another pic in the public domain from the Lithgow project.

They have Eastern Quolls at the Kyabram fauna park and I was surprised how big the adults are. Don't make particularly goo display animals as they are very shy and strictly nocturnal, so all you mostly see is a small piece of back fluff sticking out of an enclosure.

Scott,they had a tiger quoll on exhibit at ballarat wildlife park a few years back,it was one of the most energetic animals ive seen,was running around in a large exhibit,climbing every thing jumping off and seemingly on a mission the whole time,reminded me of a pacing bluey male during breeding season

Must have been hungry :-) I've been to the Fauna park half a dozen times with the kids. Might as well be looking at a rabbits bum. A bit like a lot of other Aus animals - probably nice to haves but haven't been good for the park experience. Would probably be different if they had the money to create one of those nocturnal habitat enclosures.

The echibit i saw there was actually adjoined to there cafe,so sitting in there having lunch watching it using every spare inch of the available exhibit,could be it was close to feeding time scott,which might explain its hyperactivness,there amazingly agile
