Quolls are carnivorous marsupials with a pointed snout, a long tail and brown to fl fur distinctively spotted with white.
Northern quolls, generally solitary and nocturnal, make their dens in rock crevices, tree holes or, occasionally, termite mounds.
In April 2003, some northern quolls were transferred to several islands off the Arnhem Land coast in the Northern Territory, to establish secure populations as a precautionary measure while the impacts of cane toads on quoll populations are further studied.

 Otway Ranges Environment Network - Draft revised Tiger Quoll Action Statement
The Spot-tailed Quoll is generally a species of forested habitats, particularly wet sclerophyll forest, but also occurs in lowland forest, dry foothill forest, rainforest, River Red Gum forest, sub-alpine woodland and dry ‘rainshadow’ forest such as in the Snowy River valley in East Gippsland (Mansergh and Belcher 1992; Edgar and Belcher 1995; Belcher 2000b).
Clear-fell timber harvesting is thought to be a threat to quolls as it removes some of the structural complexity that the species requires, including the removal of hollow-bearing trees, fallen logs and the reduction of canopy cover and structural complexity of the vegetation (Belcher 2000b).

These conservationists are renewing their calls for vulnerable wildlife such as the quoll to be allowed as pets, in the hope captive populations will keep the species from extinction.
Breeding quolls in captivity - something that could be done only by people with special skills - would establish alternative populations that could one day be returned to the bush.

Northern Quolls are opportunistic predators, consuming anything that moves that is within a size range that they can manage.
However, the wet season is normally a time of high Quoll abundance and high mortality as the juveniles become independent and compete for the limited number of territories, so these deaths had little impact on the population as a whole.

 Pictures of the eastern quoll|Dasyurus viverrinus facts
The dens of the eastern quoll are usually in caves and hollow logs or trees.
Eastern Quolls are opportunistic carnivores, feeding mostly on insects and agricultural pests such as corbie grubs comprising a large portion of diet.
As eastern quolls are more easily trapped in wire cage traps than spotted-tailed quolls, and will become trapped in small mammal traps which are a tube of similar dimensions to the hair tubes used in this survey, this is unlikely to reflect an aversion to hair tubes but probably realistically reflects abundance at the sites.

One of the native animals most threatened by the spread of cane toads through the Top End is the northern quoll, with scientific research showing that quolls virtually disappear from areas colonised by cane toads.
To prevent the possible extinction of this species, a number of northern quolls have been relocated to islands off the Top End coast under the Territory Government’s Island Ark project.
The $300 000 project, which began two years ago, has already succeeded in establishing breeding populations of northern quolls on two islands off the north-east Arnhem Land coast.
