Just chilling with my little mate. I'm cold and soaking wet but totally worth it #quokkaselfie

Ok one last quokka, promise. This was the first little guy I met, and thus started the addiction. Look at that pose!! How could I NOT fall in love with him?! The cutest animal EVER! (Sorry @anniepupcakes !) .

The rainy weather in Perth is making us wish we were back on Rottnest looking for crabs hiding in the rocks while the sun sets!

Quokka (Happiest Animal the World) Selfie #rottnestisland #justanotherdayinwa #quokkaselfie

Regrann from @a_lallie_ - #QUOKKA 💕 .
_
Following on from my previous post, I thought I’d write about these smiling beauties who have been dubbed the #HappiestAnimalInTheWorld
_
These animals are called #Quokkas and they are native to #Australia with most of them residing on #RottnestIsland
_
Interestingly the island was given the name #Rottnest i.e. ‘Rat’s Nest’ by Dutch explorers centuries ago when they mistook quokkas for giant rats but they’re in fact marsupials who hop around like their close relatives - #Kangaroos and #Wallabies.
_
Rottnest Island has become a very popular tourist attraction for people who want a #QuokkaSelfie. Please remember that wild animals are not photo props and #NotPets so please don’t bother them and also don’t feed them as it food-conditions them and bread can cause them infections. It’s important that we keep wildlife wild.
_
Centuries ago Australia had hundreds of thousands of quokkas but now there aren’t many left. Rottnest has about 12,000 altogether and quokkas on the mainland are disappearing quickly. They are currently listed as ‘vulnerable with a danger of extinction’ 😢 .
_
They are under threat from habitat loss (human development has destroyed the wetlands where they live) and are also threatened by invasive species of predator like foxes (that have been recklessly introduced by humans). While efforts are being made to protect them, it is thought that the numbers of quokka have still not recovered and the populations are declining #SaveQuokkas #BeKindToAnimals

Smile, it's Friday Junior! Happy almost weekend.

QUOKKA SELFIE TIP: Quokkas are very curious and very hungry little creatures! I would advise that you find a place to lie down on the ground (on your stomach) near some fresh leaves. Chances are someone will be fascinated enough to come say hello, and will stay to chow down on some vegetation! Also, hold your cell phone upside down when you take the selfie (so that the capture button is on top and the camera is on the bottom of the phone). That way, you capture more of the quokka, since they’re so small and low to the ground!

《GREAT SELFIE!》
.
Haha isn't he just the cutest!! 🐻📷
.
Anyone who has been to Rottnest Island in Western Australia will know about these cute little quokkas because they are EVERYWHERE on the island & LOVE approaching people as they walk by.
.
OBVIOUSLY hoping for food!
.
So it actually became a bit of a craze to try and get a Quokka Selfie with one & you know what... IT AIN'T EASY!! These guys move around so much that it's hard to get you both in the shot.
.
BUT... even if like me you just get the quokka in the shot.... you almost always capture their gorgeous little smiles! =)
