Photograph of Mulgara (Dasycercus cristicauda) by Babs and Bert Wells/CALM. The Mulgara is a carnivorous marsupial belonging to the Family Dasyuridae. It was once common and widespread in the central deserts of Australia but is now fragmented into small, discontinuous populations in Queensland, the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia. Recent taxonomic research has shown that what was considered to be a single species comprises at least two species and possibly more.
