Quokkas pick Ea­gles

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Footy Finals 2015 -

AS West Aus­tralian icons, we thought maybe the quokkas at Perth Zoo had a sixth sense on who would win if the West Coast Ea­gles and Fre­man­tle Dock­ers faced off in the AFL grand fi­nal.

We tested Alia (1) and Sticky (5) out and it seems West Coast have it in the bag if the two make it to the MCG.

Per­haps the quokkas were just

Ei­ther way, we are not rec­om­mend­ing you place a bet based on Alia and Sticky’s choices.

Quokkas can sur­vive in an en­vi­ron­ment vir­tu­ally de­void of fresh­wa­ter and they can climb trees.

Both Alia and Sticky came to Perth Zoo as or­phans and have been hand-raised by keep­ers.
