Transcript of The Quokka
Ecosystem: Grass lands
Grass lands have lots of grass ranging from ankle high to taller than an average person. In Perth it is temperate grasslands which means that the weather is mostly cold and dry.
If there isn't any water in summer Quokka's can get there water from plants. They also recycle a small amount of their body waste so they can go for long periods of time without food or water.
Quokka's stick in groups because the more in the group the more likely they are to be able to defend their territory. They also shelter in dense vegetation during the day making paths so they can get away from predators.
Western Australian grasslands
The Quokka's tail stabilizes it when it is standing on two feet and also helps power when the quokka jumps.
The quokka has browny/greyish colored fur so it can be camouflaged in its grassland environment.
The quokka has small paws so it can hold its food to put into its mouth.
Allow the Quokka to jump like a Kangaroo which preserves energy more than moving on all fours.
The Quokka's small size helps it move very fast amongst its environment.
