Latin Name: Dasyurus maculatus

Locailty: NSW, QLD, TAS and VIC

The ferocious carnivorous marsupial is active mainly at night. They sleep in hollow trees or logs, or in rock crevices by day. Dens are shared by family groups and defended aggressively by both male and females. They are agile climbers and run with a bounding pace, otherwise their movements are slow and deliberate, sniffing regularly for signs of food.

Fact: It is Australia’s second largest and the world’s longest living carnivorous marsupial (first is the Tasmanian Devil) and it is considered an apex predator.
