Quokka Qousins?

unnamed (1)“With all the Quokka Love on this site lately, I thought I would submit a competitor for smiling rodent-like creature: the Tree Hyrax! They’re not actually rodents, and are somehow related to manatees and elephants,” says Megan C. of Seattle.

[Pause to work that one out.]

“Photos taken by me in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. I regret not attempting a Selfie with a Hyrax, but they were not as camera-friendly as those Quokkas seem to be.”

Newborn Quokka ACTION

Many thanks to UK Cuteporter Hannah B., still awake at midnight local time, for spotting this Knucklehead-Beyond-Belief Bebeh Quokka on ZooBorns. “I don’t know if you have seen this yet (we hadn’t) but it’s too Cute! Love your site, makes every day happy.”

So this little maniac is “Meeuk Mia” or just “Mia.”

Keeper Bec Russell-Cook of the Taronga Zoo (Down Undah) has been hauling Mia around in a pouch, and waking up very early for the first of five daily feedings.

Just Another Quokka Monday, Whoa-Oh

We thought you would like to start the week totally discombobulated. Once you see these…..you will be.

Wowsers!

quokka2
We’ve featured Quokkas a time or two. Quokkas are a small marsupial native to a small corner of southwestern Australia. Submitter Nancy K. says “Ooohhh, so cute it will burn your eyes out.”

quokka5
Southwestern Australia, eh? I am leaving for there later today.

Charging the Quantas airfare to Meg. Gotta do what I gotta do.

ResQtes Of The Week (Friday Sydney Edition)

tumblr_nmadp8RH8o1up2b4zo1_1280Yesterday we featured some ResQte Photos from Aussie Patrick Jones– photos he takes for the RSPCA in NSW. In his email, he said he had some other posts recently, and to choose any that “struck our fancy.” All I can say is–THESE sure did! (But- no Quokkas or Wombats, sorry.) Comments on each photo (taken from his site) are in the hovers. That’s Billy The Kid up top.

Heeeerrrrrreeee’s CARSON!

Well, Carson AND Willa. These two Red Pandas just received their names from the Lincoln Children’s Zoo. They truly might be the cutest things in the history of the planet. Except for Quokkas. We also get a couple of primo examples of Japanese Schoolgirl Foot Stance Action, too. (:14 and :40.)

“My Hungry Hungry Homies”

If you went all the way to Rott Nest Island off the western coast of Australia in order to pet see Quokkas, do you know what it would be like?

It would be like this. (FYI, this article says petting them is illegal.)

FAVE FRAME!

Quite A Handful

ObaO0iKAustralia MAY just take The Big J’s place in our Global Cute Hierarchy. (And there wasn’t even such a thing. Until now.) When you realize The Big A has QuokkasWombats…AND Koalas; well…whadya think? The Big J…or The Big A? (Although we’ll knock some points off The Big A for those horrendous big ol’ honkin’ spiders.)
