  1. I always get rather amused by these stories on Quolls. While you don’t see them very often, and yes they are rare, it is not that unusual to see one if you spend a fair bit of time in the Otways. To suggest that finding some scat is only the forth conformation of their existence this century is just a bit hard to accept. Possibly the issue is more about those that know where to find them would rather see them left in peace, rather than cause them be “studied”.
