“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.”
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.

The cutest little unique animal video you're ever going to see ever. A quokka #video to melt your heart into. What's sad is that they're endangered. I think a lot of people would bring one home to keep. You're own little bear faced rat to hug.

We thought you would like to start the week totally discombobulated. Once you see these…..you will be.
Southwestern Australia, eh? I am leaving for there later today.
Charging the Quantas airfare to Meg. Gotta do what I gotta do.
Gonna meet me some Quokkas, I am.
Will file dispatches from Down Under as time permits.

When I first came across this story, I thought “Dibblers? No way. Have we ever done a Dibblers post?” Sure enough, right before Christmas last year. Well, ya know- they’re still Cute, so here they come AGAIN. Meet the Dibblers, Part II.
(BuzzFeed by way of Andrew Y.)
That was the subject line of the email Sharon B-C (Western Australia) sent to us. And the answer is easy- not much! (Can’t flat say nothing else is cuter; Quokkas, ya know.)
“Maybe a Bebeh Bun displaying Rule #58? These photos were taken of some adorable baby bunnies at the Blue Hills Farmstay in Harvey, Western Australia. My son just LOVED them (understandably!) For your consideration for Bunday. Keep the cute coming!”
