The quokka is a small type of wallaby found mainly in the south west region of Western Australia, particularly in Rottnest Island, and idyllic location 18 kilometers off the coats near Perth. About the size of a cat, the quokka has thick, grey-brown fur, a broad face, shiny black eyes, and round furry ears. Thanks to its cute, smiley appearance and an acceptance of humans, the quokka has become a popular subject for selfies.
