See the face of this creature? Doesn't it look so cute and lovable
The quokka is the happiest creature in the world, if looks are anything to go by. Quokkas are found on the small island of Rottnest, off the coast of Western Australia. The quokka is a cat-sized macropod.
Like the kangaroos and wallabies that belong to the macropod family, the Quokka is a vegetarian and has a baby-friendly walk.
It weighs between two and a half to five kilograms and is 40 to 54 cm long. The baby may look like a kangaroo, but it can climb small trees and shrubs. Quokkas live for at least ten years. Rottnest island is so named because the Dutch who discovered it, named it for the rodent 'rat'.
Kwoka is not afraid of humans. A large number of tourists come to Rottnest Island to take selfies. But provoking the happiest creature on earth will get you bitten.
The reason for Quokka's fame is its face. This expression may or may not be because of happiness, but the shape of its mouth has something going for it.
