Is this the world’s friendliest animal?

They have been described as the “world’s happiest animal.” You might have seen photo of a Quokka trying to get in on a selfie doing the rounds on Facebook.

Around the size of a cat, with the tail of a rat, the nocturnal marsupials can only be found on Australia’s Rottnest Island and a handful of smaller islands around the coast of Western Australia.

They are curious about visitors and like to come out and sniff them. They sure are cute!
