Rottnest is known for it's Quokka's, small kangaroo like creatures that live on the island.
Quokkas are Rottnest Islands native animals. They are larger than rats but smaller than Wallabies, so they are about the size of full grown cats.
They are normally a brownish, grayish colour and are fairly chubby. Their hair is normally sticking up, so they look really fluffy.
They are very cute but they are a wild creature and therefore are not to be patted. They are Native to Rottnest and they look like they will be staying there for a long time to come.
