Quokka – the most adorable Australian
Quokka is a small mammal that can be found on the South-Western tip of Australia. It looks like a tiny kangaroo, a size of a cat. Though the locals often called it a kangaroo rat. Back in seventeenth century Dutch seafarers mistook them for giant rats and even called the island where they saw them first the Rat Nest – the Rottenest Island.
Now this is world’s most known home for this creature which is in fact have nothing in common with rats. It’s quite the opposite. A friendly and utterly cute animal with its mouth constantly shaped in a happy smile.
