Let’s end on a fuzzy one, shall we? The eastern quoll is about the size of a small housecat and only live in Australia. They’re hardy little creatures—life is basically out to get them from beginning to end. Female quolls give birth to about 30 babies, but have only six teats. So only the strongest (or pushiest) young survive. The ones that make it are often eaten by predators, many of whom were introduced to the island recently as invasive species. The last haven for these spotted fuzzballs is Tasmania, which is thankfully devoid of the foxes and dingoes that love to munch on them.
