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 drawn to their fellow animal rather than a big metal anchor.

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

n 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.
