Weird, but cute

He’s kind of cute isn’t he? This little marsupial is a spotted-tailed quoll and he lives in Tasmania, Australia’s smallest state. They are the world’s largest marsupial carnivore (they kill their prey by biting near or right behind the head), but I think the most interesting thing about them is that they’ve been known to do it for 8 hours (shall we name this little guy Sting?). They also poop together in a pile. Weird!
