The river the Indians called the Moonshell is, for the most part, a quiet river, an unobtrusive river. It is not deep, nor fast, nor useful for navigation. It does not transform the countryside through which it flows, but nestles gently into it, a partner with the land rather than a destroyer.

  1. Oh, that bush cat has such a cute little face! But I bet they can be pretty fierce if they have to be.

  2. I think they may have a similar temperament to the Tasmanian Devil.

  3. I like the Quoll too! It’s one of the alpha-predators of Australia but its ranks have been thinned because it eats invasive cane toads (which are poisonous). Fortunately volunteers have been trying to teach the quolls not to eat toads–which sounds like a difficult project.

  4. Gosh, the cane-toad-eating-quoll situation! I have not read anything about that for years.
