WHAT IS A QUOKKA?
The island of Rottnest, right off the west coast of Australia, is home to the Quokka (rhymes with “mocha”). These small, teddy bear-sized marsupials are the smallest members of the macropod family, which also includes kangaroos and wallabies! The Quokka is covered with short, coarse brown fur, has small rounded ears, a black nose, and a rat-like tail. They are nocturnal herbivores, who hop like kangaroos, climb trees and eat leaves, stems, and bark from different types of plants! Female Quokkas can give birth to a baby, also called a joey, and the baby will live in its mother’s pouch for the first six months of its life. Quokkas have also become a large tourist attraction on Rottnest Island! They are known to be the “World’s Happiest Animal” due to their irresistible smiles and friendly personalities. More than 500,000 visitors a year will come to the island to try to get a “selfie” with these adorable animals. Because of the large number of visitors, Quokkas are not afraid to “hop” up to you for a quick picture!
