Australia is a stunning country full of beautiful beaches and hot climate. 83% of the mammals are endemic to the area, not found anywhere in the planet. One such creature is the quoll: the small marsupial has the spots of a deer and the size of a small cat. British explorer Captain James Cook recorded the name ‘quoll’ in 1770 from a local aboriginal name. Other settlers, however, also referred to quolls as ‘native cats.’
The nocturnal animal is not the most social. Preferring to live a solitary life, this spotted creature only mingles during mating season, which is in the winter. Not sure how well the quoll would fare as a pet, but its definitely one of the cutest animals coming out of Australia.
