    The quoll is a carnivorous marsupial native to mainland Australia, New Guinea, and Tasmania. It is primarily nocturnal and spends most of the day in its den. Of the six species of quoll, four are found in Australia and two in New Guinea.

    Welcome and enjoy!

    Welcome to BYC, Andrew!

    I must say I never heard of a quoll before today. They look like mean little beasties. So sorry for your loss! As Sumi said, check out the buy/sell forum. How about local advertisements?

    Good luck!

    [​IMG] How about trying the aussie threads? "Australia, six states and one funny little Island," or "Australians, where are you?" They also hang out at the Emu threads.
