Fun facts about the quokka for kids
Hey everyone, we are back with season two of #FOCFunFacts 🤗 🥳 This season, we have a new little assistant co-anchor who has wanted to join us for a while. 🥰 I'm not sure if it was the chocolate we had before filming or the excitement to be back that put us in a giggly mood. Either way, we had a lot of fun filming, and we hope you enjoy it too! If you can think of a better quokka joke than my terrible ones, let us know. 😉
Is the quokka really smiling?
The quokka is known as one of the happiest animals because it looks like it's always smiling, but it turns out it's not actually smiling. That's just how its face is shaped, and its mouth stays open with its tongue out to keep it cool.
Where do you fin the quokka?
The quokka is only found in the wild in Western Australia on two small islands called Rottnest Island and Bald Island.
How safe are quokkas?
The quokka may be very cute, but you still have to be careful because it is a wild animal with sharp teeth and claws. If you do touch a quokka or feed them, you can get a $150 fine and sometimes more.
