Our Mascot

thylamys velutina

The website name Kweekah is derived from the phonetically spelled mascot name "cuica”.

“Cuica” which scientific name is thylamys velutina is a small Brazilian marsupial with habitat in its southeast tropical forest. One of the characteristics of this small marsupial is its large brain size, hence kids are small in size but their learning potential is immense, therefore the reason I selected this mascot for the website. This marsupial is a nocturn animal, very adaptable and reponsible for sustaining reforestation. Every night they travel 100 miles through the forest spreading seeds.
