The quokka has chosen thee!
While on a bike ride on Rottnest Island in Western Australia, Campbell Jones and his girlfriend met a quokka on the bike trail. Upon spotting the creature, Jones got off his cycle and snapped some selfies with the curious animal. The quokka, known as “the happiest animal on Earth,” posed for the pictures with a smile. What a sport!
A surprising development in this story is that the quokka actually chased after the two bikers when they were done taking photos. “As I walked back to my bike, the quokka chased after me,” he told Western Australia's newspaper, Perth Now. “I put down the GoPro and it jumped at me as if to say come ‘come back.’”
