Carnivorous Marsupial Challenge!
This competition has closed.
Do you know your rare Australian carnivorous marsupials? Take the Carnivorous Marsupial Challenge! You can win a copy of Craig Heinselman's latest book - Elementum Bestia - which contains my chapter, "In Search of Rare Carnivorous Marsupials: An Examination of the Evidence for Their Survival".
All of the carnivorous marsupials on this page are one of the following:
- Tasmanian tiger (thylacine)
- Tasmanian devil
- Spotted-tail Quoll (also called Tiger Quoll)
- Eastern Quoll
These animals have all featured on WLMD previously - in text or photo formats - and also appear in the book, but not necessarily using the same photos shown here!
Your task - should you choose to accept it - is to correctly name every animal pictured on this page.
Did you know Australia has two more species of quoll - the Western Quoll and the Northern Quoll? New Guinea has another two - the New Guinean Quoll and the Bronze Quoll.
Better get cracking!
