Super Quokka!

When a cyclist in Australia stopped to visit with a little quokka, he got a warm welcome and a once-in-a-lifetime photo. At first, the quokka just posed for a quick selfie…

But the friendly quokka wanted more. “As I walked back to my bike, the quokka chased after me,” the cyclist said. “I put down the GoPro and it jumped at me as if to say come ‘come back’.” And that’s when this happened:

    I was in Australia last month and I was crushed to learn that quokkas live only in western Australia . I wasn’t going there.

    Just when I thought Q’s couldn’t get any cuter – “Hey, let’s go ride around!”

    I love the fact that they copyrighted the second picture!
