Quolls a strange Animal
A remarkable specimen of Australian zoology was shown to us a few days ago. Up to the time of seeing it we thought we were well aquainted with all the native animals of this region, but it seems the case otherwise. However the new object of interest exhibited to us, we believe is exceedingly rare in New South Wales, although by no means in Tasmania.
The appellation by which it is known, namely the tiger cat is certainly a misnomer, as it has not the slightest affinity in external appearance to the tiger or cat species. The specimen shown to us is about 8 inches in height and measures 3 ft 4" from tip to tip, the tail which is not bushy, being fully as long as the body. The head is entirely dissimilar from that of the tiger cat, or ounce and is shaped more like that of a rat, the neck being remarkably thick. The legs short and not much unlike those of the native bear, with long claws, no doubt given for the purpose of assisting the body in climbing. The fur is of no length, harsh to touch and we should suppose of no commercial value. the colour is reddish brown with white spots. this strange animal was hunted down and killed by dogs belonging to Mr Paterson of Manton's Creek (near Yass) and we are informed that a second and much larger specimen has been seen by the same person, but it eluded the chase that was made for it. The skin has been well dried and temporarily stuffed in order to give an idea of the creature while alive, but Mr Colls to whom Mr Paterson has given it, purposes having it stuffed afresh, and as it is a decidedly interesting contribution to Australian zoology it is worth any trouble or labour that may be bestowed upon it. Mr Colls will be happy to show the animal to any person who may be curious to see it. Yass Courier 26.7.1862.
