What Happens When You See The World’s Happiest Animal In Australia?


Dubbed as “the world’s happiest animal”, a quokka can be found on some smaller islands off the coast of Western Australia. Because it’s so freakin’ adorable, how can you tell when it doesn’t wanna be messed with?

Well, you really can’t.

Just ask 21-year-old Campbell Jones, aka: @cambojones2020, who came across one these little nuggets during a bike ride in Rottnest Island, home of the quokkas. Campbell told PerthNow:

As I walked back to my bike, the quokka chased after me. I put down the GoPro and it jumped at me as if to say ‘come back.

Look how happy the wild marsupial looks!

If you come across one of these in Australia though, do be careful since quokkas can bite if you try to touch or feed them. But they sure make a great selfie-moment! Awwwww….
