Tasmanian Platypus and Echidnas

Tasmania is fortunate to have two of the world’s only five living monotreme species. The platypus and short-beaked echidna are always popular roadside finds while on a Tasmanian tour with Pepper Bush Adventures.

The platypus is one of the most unique and quirky animals on the planet, with a combination of features that seem almost too strange to belong to one animal. With a duck-like bill, the platypus has a beaver like tail, webbed feet, and a double fur coat. You can see these spectacular creatures on tour with Pepper Bush Adventures.

The short-beaked echidna is a popular roadside discovery. While touring through the local country roads we happen upon these remarkable creatures. The echidna is covered in spines, which are modified hairs made of keratin and provides an effective layer of protection. The echidna has an 18 cm tongue used to capture ants, termites, and other small invertebrates, which are the echidna’s primary food sources.

Eastern Quolls in Tasmania

Pepper Bush Adventures produce the Quoll Patrol wildlife tour which features the eastern quoll. These cheeky and inquisitive undercover specialists will entertain you and put a sparkle in your evening. The dart here, they dart there in their poker dot pyjamas in pursuit of their evening meal.

Eastern quolls are carnivorous marsupials native to Australia, including Tasmania. These spotted critters are about the size of a small domestic cat, with males typically larger than females. They have short, dense fur that is usually grey or brown on the upper parts of their body, fading to a creamy white on their underside. They have a pointed snout, large eyes, and rounded ears. Their fur has spots or patches of lighter coloration, especially on the throat and chest.

Eastern quolls were once widespread across southeastern Australia, including Tasmania. Today, eastern quolls are primarily found in Tasmania due to extensive habitat loss and predation pressure from introduced species on mainland Australia.
