Nose to nose with an Eastern Quoll in Tasmania. They went extinct on the mainland in the 1960s, apparently – the last sighting was in Vaucluse (inner Sydney) of all places. But Bruny Island has billions of them.

They are bold little buggers, seemingly unfazed by camera flashes going off in their faces, and some even headbutted the plate-glass door.

I’m sure they would have eaten us if they had the chance.
