[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Quokka is a small marsupial, so small that Vlemming the dutch explorer who first saw them named the island on which they lived Rottnest ( Dutch for ratsnest! ) About a foot high when purched on their hind legs, they appear cute, but if provoked will give a nasty bite. Rottnest is a small island about 20km off Fremantle and a popular tourist destination, there are no cars on the island and all transport is by bus, bicycle or foot.
