Welcome to our Sunday Selfie project, featuring a wild endangered Quenda. We took these photos in Perth, where we are staying in a National Park, in a cabin for a few more days.
The Quenda is a native Australian marsupial, which means they have a pouch to carry their young, and they are part of the gravely endangered Bilby family. Quendas are about the size of a large Jack Rabbit (and not related to rats.)
Quendas build tunnels to get around and like to scratch around in underground vegetation. Although solitary animals, they like to interact with other Quendas, which are sometimes referred to as Bandicoots. They eat insects and plants.
It was thrilling for us to see one, and then days later get the opportunity to photograph one! In the coming weeks mom (Michele) will write an in-depth article about endangered Quendas.
We hold the people of France and those affected in our thoughts and prayers, including the many animals also affected.
Please think about joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, which stays open all week. Hope you enjoyed meeting the Quenda and we look forward to you visiting us again. *waves paw* :=o)
