The Chuditch - Dasyurus geoffroii - is the largest carnivorous marsupial found in WA. It is easily recognised by its distinctive white spots on brown fur with a black brush tail. Males weigh an average of 1.3kg and females 0.9kg.
Once found through most of the southern half of mainland Australia, the Chuditch is now confined to the South-West. The largest populations survive in the jarrah forest, with lower numbers in a few areas of remnant vegetation in the Wheatbelt.
