Quokkas Are the ‘World’s Happiest Animal’ and We Have The Proof

In case you never heard of quokkas, then you are in for a treat! They seem to be the world’s happiest animals and if you take a look at them you will understand why. They have this contagious smile and tourists can’t stop photographing themselves with these tiny creatures. You can meet them in person, by visiting Rottnest Island and Bald Island in Australia and they belong to the same macropod family as the kangaroos or wallabies. Quokkasare mainly nocturnal animals and they can live up to 10 years, they feed on herbs and seem to be very friendly with people.

Unfortunately, they are going through a hard period as their population seems to be downsizing due to several threats from predators such as foxes. Because they are very close to becoming an endangered species, touching or even feeding them can be fined with 300 Australian dollars. Also, beware that they have sharp teeth and nails, so you might reconsider becoming too friendly around this cute little creature.
