Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

This unique little fella is a Quokka – a distant relative of the kangaroo and they can only be found on Rottnest Island.  Imagine our delight when cycling through the island, we bumped into a couple of them just hanging around on a hot afternoon.  Tame and incredibly friendly, they came right up to us, made friends and went on to inspect our bikes and bags! 🙂

  1. This might be one of the most interesting creatures I have ever seen! They are amazingly cute and tremendously hideous all at the same time! LOL. On what island do you live?

    1. LOL, I thought they looked a little like rats when I first saw them, probably because of the tail. But upon a closer look, they looked more like furry little kangaroos – too cute! I live on the sunny island of Singapore and these guys are found on Rottnest in Western Australia.
