Heads or tails..



Whereas the koala, yesterday's post, is found all over Australia the Quokka, protected by law, is native to WA. The main population of quokkas is on Rottnest Island just off the coast of WA. So friendly are these sweet wee critters that it has become a huge attraction when visiting the island to take a selfie with a quokka, check out the #quokkaselfie here. Don't be alarmed, there would be serious consequences for anyone treating the quokkas badly and if you click the hashtag link, they look like they are having fun also :) The two here however were lazing languorously in the hot sun, not even the slightest hope of a selfie! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  2. I guess that when you know you're a star you can turn your back on the camera whenever you feel like it.

  7. The selfie pictures were funny. The Quokka do seem to enjoy having their pictures taken and some of them have great expressions on their faces. Thanks for enlightening us.
