Quokka eat many different kinds of vegetation, such as grasses and leaves. The animals have a high water requirement despite living in a relatively dry region, but they get most of their water from eating plants with high moisture content.
Quokka in Captivity
Quokka are curious creatures who like to run and climb. They are quite adept at seeking out food that campers thought was secure. They benefit from puzzle feeders and having to work to get to their food so treats hidden inside hollowed gourds will keep them entertained.
Quokka reach adulthood by age one and half. The gestational period is about one month long, after which the female gives birth to a single offspring, called a joey. Like all marsupials, the mother has a pouch in which the newborn baby lives until it becomes more fully developed. Quokka joeys remain in the pouch for the first six months of life. The joey still needs its mother for milk for two more months.
