This is not a quoll but it is a dasyurid. It is a dibbler.

Dibblers have been in the news recently – DPAW and Perth Zoo are doing a wild release down on a cat/fox-free island off the south coast of Western Australia.

This dibbler has a running wheel. I have video of the dibbler falling off the running wheel. Want to see it?


Rough boards are finished. Yay! This is a spoiler-free version of shot 105. The spoilery bit has been replaced with a chuditch.

Now to go back and figure out some dialogue timing.

This is an eastern quoll being all curious and nose, posted from @MtRothwell which is the Twitter account of the Mt Rothwell Conservation and Research Centre in Victoria, Australia.

NB: If this has been reblogged, it’s highly likely that even more names have been added since. Here’s a permalink to the original post.

Here’s a few other folks working with Australian wildlife or associated disciplines who have Twitter accounts. Follow them for news from the field and awesome quoll pictures.

  • jude (@fudgeh0g) – currently engaged in zoological field work around the Pilbara, quite possibly the last habitat of the endangered northern quoll that hasn’t been invaded by poisonous cane toads
  • Jack Ashby (@JackDAshby) – a self-professed “Australian mammal nerd”
  • Trent Forge (@TrentForge) – a Ph.D student studying spotted-tailed quolls
  • Melissa Jensen (@MelissaJensen_) – a Ph.D candidate working out of Adelaide involved with western quoll reintroduction to the Flinders Ranges
  • Stephanie Hing (@Conserv8nVet) – a Ph.D candidate and vet and conservation scientist working out of Perth’s Murdoch University on woylies
  • Tim Doherty (@TimDoherty_) – another wildlife researcher, much of his work has centred on studying feral cats
  • A S Glen (@AS_Glen) – an NZ-based ecologist studying invasive species
  • Conservation Ecology Centre (@ConservationEC) – a Victorian organisation focussing on the Cape Otway ecosystem
  • Mulligans Flat (@MulligansFlat) – a wildlife sanctuary in the ACT
  • Nature Conservation Trust (@NCT_NSW) – a NSW-based trust committed to private land conservation

This is a list in progress and I intend to add more Aussie wildlife researchers and organisations working with quolls and other Australian marsupial predators as I find them. So stay tuned!

These are not quolls but they are dasyurids. They are fat-tailed dunnarts because it wouldn’t be a zoo visit without dunnarts.

Sadly they are in spooky sepia because their enclosure only has red lighting.

This is not a quoll but it’s near as dammit. It’s a Tasmanian devil, currently the largest marsupial predator in existence.
