Description from Wikipedia

The quokka /ˈkwɒkə/ (Setonix brachyurus), the only member of the genus Setonix, known locally as the Kangaroo Rat, is a small macropod about the size of a domestic cat. Like other marsupials in the macropod family (such as the kangaroos and wallabies), the quokka is herbivorous and mainly nocturnal. It can be found on some smaller islands off the coast of Western Australia, in particular on Rottnest Island just off Perth and Bald Island near Albany....
