Quokka, the smallest breed of wallaby, lets no water pass their lips.
They soak up moisture through their skin without ever taking sips.
They tunnel through tall brush like they're in a race.
They leap over high grasses to get from place to place.
Unlike their cousin, the kangaroo, they scramble up tall trees,
To reach the top, because they dine on succulents and leaves.
But, if this friendly animal you happen one day to meet,
Their curiosity will tempt them to come close-up to your feet.
