This beautiful animal is Red-bellied short-necked turtle. It is found in Australia and Papua New Guinea, and in Australia it is highly endangered. These stunning colours are highly pronounced as infants and juveniles, but fade as they age. They reach about ten inches (25cm) in length.
It's called a Quokka, lives in Australia, is endangered, and considered one of the friendliest, happiest animals on earth.
