Tiger quolls are the largest carnivorous marsupials on the Australian mainland, but on Tasmania they are dwarfed by the Tasmanian devil.
Scientific name: Dasyurus maculatus
Tasmanian devils and tiger quolls coexist with humans in Tasmania.
Tasmania is a last sanctuary for some remarkable animals. Tasmanian devils vanished from the mainland long ago, and tiger quolls are rare there. Here they thrive, and are not shy of scavenging from humans.
