The Quokka is a type of small wallaby. It has thick greyish brown fur with lighter brown under surfaces. It has a brown face, short rounded ears, black
eyes and a black nose. Its feet, paws and short tail are brown. The males are bigger than the females.
The Quokka bounds and hops along the ground although it can climb trees if it needs to. It will sit on its hind legs to look around and will also use its
front paws to search for and pick up food. It is the only mammal which is native to Rottnest Island and can be found almost everywhere on the Island.
It is mainly nocturnal. This means that it is mostly active at night, preferring to rest or sleep in the shade during the day.
