This is not a quoll but it’s close enough. It’s a Tasmanian devil, the largest marsupial predator still in existence and the record-holder for highest bite-strength to weight ratio of any living animal.

Looney Tunes Show writers: if you’re reading this and The Looney Tunes Show is still going, please turn Taz into an immigrant from Australia, give him an impenetrable Tasmanian accent and a deathly fear of acne. The discontinuity will be worth it.

Tasmanian devils are currently undergoing an Australia-wide breeding programme to create insurance populations in case they go extinct in the wild from communicable facial cancer. If you’re in or around Perth, the biggest display group of Tasmanian devils in one place can be found down at Peel Zoo near Pinjarra.
