Sanity Break: Friendly Quokkas

Mr. Nature here–and our video safari today takes us back to Australia for another visit with the quokkas.

Old-time sailors named the place Rat Nest Island; but the quokkas aren’t rats, but marsupials. And very friendly marsupials, at that. Their enjoyment of human company has made their home a popular tourist destination.

These animals never learned to be afraid of human beings–because for once we didn’t give them any reason to! Let’s pray that never changes. More of this world needs to be a lot more like this little island.
