Chuditch

The chuditch (from Noongar djoodidj) or western quoll is a predatory marsupial – a dasyurid. It is the only species of Australian quoll not currently on the threatened species list. The chuditch was originally found all the way across Australia but habitat loss and introduced predators have reduced its range to southwestern Australia.

Pretty much every photo or video I’ve ever taken of a chuditch has been at Perth Zoo in the nocturnal house. The enclosure is dimly lit in red, so the photos are processed to monochrome red.
