It is probably that you have already seen a photo of a quokka floating around the internet. This animal's peculiarity is that its smile can make even the stoniest heart melt. They are pretty friendly little things. It is true that it is preferable to leave these animals alone. Though cute, these are after all wild animals. In any case, this video is the proof that the quokka is the happiest animal in the world thanks to its cheerful disposition and trust of humans.

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. Part of the kangaroo and wallaby family, it has become something of a tourist attraction and visitors flock to the island to try and snap a photo with the friendly quokka.

Campbell Jones was enjoying a bike ride around Rottnest Island when he comes across a quokka. And due to its cuteness, he stops to take a closer look. He stops to get a selfie with the marsupial, but it won’t let him get away so fast.

But as he is walking back to his bike, the quokka chases after him and when he puts down the GoPro camera it jumps at him as if to say ‘please come back'. So we are not quite sure if the quokka in this video is aggrieved, or if it just wants to give him a hug. It is really hard to tell if the quokka is angry at him. Surely it would be hard to stay mad at this cute little thing, anyway.
However, like any wild animal, quokkas can bite, especially when humans try and feed or pat them. But you're unlikely to get sick from the bite.
