“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!

quokka05Unfortunately, Meg has not (yet) approved my airfare to Australia to meet the Quokkas for some Selfies. While I cross my fingers and pack, please amuse yourself with this Follow-Up Quokka Qollection from My Modern Met.

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.

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.

UPDATED! Welcome To The Taronga Zoo, Mate!

DSCN0376“We were fortunate enough to take a behind-the-scenes tour at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia. The Cuteness of the Australian native fauna is off the charts. This Quokka jumped right in front of my husband’s camera!” -Michele G.

UPDATE!

“The ones that were awake just hopped around and seemed to be begging the keeper for carrots (the curious little guy had to hop around a few Echidna to make sure he stayed close to people.) I would have scooped him up and Snorgled him if our guide hadn’t been watching us like a hawk. He told us that he could stop our private tour if we touched a Koala, so I wasn’t going to step too far out of line, even with massive temptation. It took self-control of epic proportions.”

Voila! More Quokka!

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.
