Meet The Friendliest Quokka In The World
When a cute little quokka is after you asking for a good nice cuddle, it must be a wonderful experience.
That is exactly what happened to 21-year-old Campbell Jones. He and his girlfriend were exploring Rottnest on their bikes one day. At one point, they decided to stop for a moment and take some photos of the beautiful surrounding. Shortly after they noticed what is possibly the friendliest quokka in the world strolling on the roadside. Then, the magic happened. It was like love at first sight. Like two people who can’t take their eyes off each other.
Here’s how Campbell described his encounter with this cute and friendly creature:
“As I walked back to my bike, the quokka chased after me,” Jones told the West Australian.”I put down the GoPro and it jumped at me as if to say, ‘Come back.'”
We are sure Campbell Jones will never forget that cute quokka smile and even cuter quokka selfie.
Quokka is a marsupial found in Australia. Despite their growing popularity, the species is listed as “vulnerable” due to habitat loss and the introduction of many nonnative predators. Let’s hope that photos like these will raise public awareness about the protection of these little animals.
