The quokka is a member of genus Setonix and enjoys the distinction of being the only member of that genus. Truly unique, this small macropod is about the size of a domestic cat. The quokka is a marsupial of the macropod family, putting in cahoots with wallabies and kangaroos. Like many marsupials, the quokka has made a home in Australia.
Cute and furry, the animals often have a ‘smiling’ expression due to their buccal structure and wide eyes.
