These are not quolls but they are marsupials. Here we have western grey kangaroos, which are the native kangaroo species around Perth where I live.

They are too small to ride to school so we have to hitch emus up to rickshaws instead.

This is not a quoll but it is a marsupial. It is Sticky the Quokka from Perth Zoo.

Sticky’s is a sad and bewildering story. Someone kidnapped him from Rottnest Island for unknown reasons but ended up dumping him in Kings Park next to Stickybeak Cafe which is where he gets his name from. He was brought to Perth Zoo and has lived there ever since.

Sticky shares an enclosure with Norbert the nabarlek and a hyperactive woylie.

This is not a quoll though it is a marsupial. It is a nabarlek, a pygmy rock-wallaby. His name is Norbert and he lives at Perth Zoo.

This is not a quoll though it is a marsupial. It is a nabarlek, also known as a pygmy rock-wallaby. His name is Norbert and he is tiny.

You might ask how a rock-wallaby actually gets around on rock faces. The answer is that they leap like ninjas and scramble up with their forepaws. Norbert here can leap with awesome accuracy over big distances. He is awesome and quite a cutie too.

He’s rooming with a quokka called Sticky and a woylie whose name i didn’t catch. Sticky and Norbert seem to be getting along alright but the woylie.. not so much. It is a heartwarming macropod marsupial sitcom in the making, that’s for sure.

This is not a quoll but it is a marsupial. It is a red kangaroo having a snooze with an arm folded up under its head.

From certain angles, red kangaroos are mostly legs and tail.
