Q is for Quoll, Queensland and Quokka
Quolls are a carnivorous marsupial native to Australia and New Guinea. The Eastern Quoll is extinct on mainland Australia and is now found only in Tasmania.
Queensland, my home state, is the north-eastern state of Australia. Known as the 'Sunshine State' it is the second largest state in the country, and ranges from a tropical to subtropical climate.
The Quokka is a small macropod about the size of a domestic cat. Like the kangaroo it is herbivorous. It has a very limited distribution with its most well known location Rottnest Island off the coast of Perth (the capital of Western Australia).
