These are spotted-tailed quoll claws. They are quite sharp.
This is a northern quoll, the professed favourite quoll of Sir David Attenborough. If not for the Queensland sugar industry’s haphazard approach to biological controls in the 1930s, this species could have had a much better chance than it currently does.
The whole cane toad situation makes me think the Australian sugar industry should be much more visibly committed to toad-related conservation efforts than they currently are.
This is not a quoll but it is a dasyurid. It is a red-tailed phascogale. It is most certainly not a mouse.
Like many dasyurids whose names don’t rhyme with Smasmanian smevil or smotted-smailed smoll, it is somewhat mouse-like. This leads to a never-ending parade of people going through the Nocturnal House pointing at dunnarts, dibblers, phascogales and mulgaras going “Oh look, it’s a mouse/rat." This would be the equivalent of me pointing at a swan and saying "Oh look, it’s a duck.”
