Thanks for the reference, though i understand you apprehension at using it as a "reference" material. Shall try to find a copy in the library or uni.

My experience is limited to one wild female, with mange, caught at Barren Grounds on a TAFE field trip and some poor creatures at Featherdale Wildlife park (how they justify the name is beyond me) pacing up and down.

Totally of the topic.  What else could t have been?

Hi Susannah

Yes, quolls do indeed come in different colour phases. Most are tawny with
white spots, but some are striking black and white. I wouldn't usually
recommend this magazine to anyone but there are good photos of both types in
Australian Geographic 56. I'm not convinced by Brian Fleming's description
that the animal he saw was definitely a quoll, though.

Cheers, Andrew
