This is not a quoll but it is a dasyuromorph. It is a fat-tailed dunnart, a tiny mouse-like marsupial with huge eyes. This creature stores fat in its tail as an energy source, hence its name.

Like many dasyuromorphs, they are comparatively short-lived – their average lifespan is less than two years.

This is not a quoll. It is a bilby, a kind of long-eared bandicoot thingy. In Australia, we have Easter Bilbies as well as Easter Bunnies, because rabbits are ruining the country’s native ecology while bilbies are vulnerable to extinction and need the PR.

Remember Australia: when you’re eating Easter Bunnies, you’re eating Eurocentrism.
