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.”

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

RE: Australian trip to take some Quokka Selfies!!!
________________________________________________________________________________________

Things I need for the trip. 1) Apple iPhone 6. 2) Two round trip plane tickets SFO to Perth Airport. I know it’s steep- just write it off, mwah mwah mwah. 3.) Gonna travel light, will pick up a few clothing items when we land at Perth. Will take a MacBook Pro in order to post (Oops, will need one of those, too. Can I just pick both up at Cupertino?) We’ll take the ferry to Rottnest- that’s where a lotta Quokkas are. Should be total amazeballs. LMK. Thx, B.

Meet The Dibblers

Before I saw this on ZooBorns, I thought that perhaps “Quokka” was the funniest animal name. But that was before..

The Dibbler.

Or, in the case of this first photo, a Stack O’ Dibblers. ZB says The Dibbler is “an endangered carnivorous marsupial.”

6a010535647bf3970b01bb07c5c4da970d-800wi
The Perth Zoo bred some Dibblers and then “released them to a fenced area at Whiteman Park, giving them a chance to establish in the absence of foxes and cats, which have likely contributed to their decline in the wild.”
