The humble quokka, a native Australian marsupial, has been given the title of the Happiest Animal In The World by some and it’s not hard to see why…
Recently Roger Federer, the great Swiss tennis player, raised their profile several thousand percent when he snapped a selfie with this little guy he met while visiting my home of Perth.
There are few of these animals left on our mainland (wild cats and wild development has seen to that!) but there is a thriving colony on a holiday island just off the coast from Perth, Rottnest Island (Early Dutch explorers saw these guys with their rat-like tails and thought they were rats – hence the island name).
