"Never miss a chance to do good"--David Stanley
These are quokkas native to Western Australia. They wear a perpetual smile and are wishing you a happy day.
YES! Straight away they put a smile on my face, too!SO cute.
Looks like a squirrel and koala got together and made a smile. 😎
Now that's the kind of smile I needed today :)
Awww, quokkas are cartoon characters come to life. Those smiles are more infectious than the current plague.
Cute face and cute name.
Very, very cheery! Fits perfectly with the gorgeous spring day we're having in our part of the Midwest.
That's what I needed today - thank you!
I wonder if they have cartoon Quokkas or Teddy Quokkas down under. The wee beasties look to be worth fame.
Haha. Filarious.You know what else put a smile on my face? The results from yesterday's flash (non) fiction. Those were some fascinating entries. I couldn't stop reading. I was hoping you'd "forget" to close the entry time and more letters would just keep rolling in all day today. Great stuff, reefers. Now if I can learn to heed some advice...
My guess this must be from Heidi *waving*. I have flights booked to do a writing retreat on Rottnest Island, where these cuties live, in August. Thanks to covid I am thinking I am not going to make it (I live on the other side of the country). I haven't seen a quokka yet and have been as excited about seeing them as I have about going on the retreat.The quokkas are really used to people and so are very easy to get close to.
Sooooo cute! How have I never seen a quokka before?? That's very remiss of me as an Australian - I've even been to Western Australia and everything.
MA Hudson - they're only found on Rottnest Island (and very rarely in the South West... obviously cats and foxes make short work of them), so if you didn't go there you wouldn't have seen them.
Those little guys are so cute, they are almost living cartoons.
Selfies with a quokka on Rottnest Island in Western Australia is A Thing. You can't go to Rotto without trying for one. Quokkas have no natural predators on that island (except for photographers) and are quite friendly. Google "Selfie with a quokka" for more adorable pictures of these little guys.Many of the islands off the coast of WA are protected wildlife homes to many animals not found elsewhere. Fr'ex: the Tamar Wallaby is only found on Garden Island. (Their natural predator is a vehicle bumper, and they don't always get out of the way of an oncoming car.) They're not as cute or as social as the quokkas, though.
