Meet Quokka: The Happiest Animal On Earth

Not everything in Australia is trying to kill you. Quokka is a small macropod about the size of a domestic cat. It lives only on some smaller islands off the coast of Western Australia, it’s very friendly, and looks profoundly happy all the time.

  1. It’s one of the few creatures down here that doesn’t. Pretty much everything else? Yeah. :)

  2. On my next trip to WA I’m going to feed one some strawberries so I get a counter photo of one that looks vicious

  3. Where can I get some of the pills those quokkas take every morning? Dang, they seem excited to be alive!

  4. Lacking in the parenting skills though: “When a female quokka with a joey in her pouch is pursued by a predator, she may drop her baby onto the ground; the joey produces noises, which may serve to attract the predator’s attention, while the mother escapes.”
