Meet the Quokka, the happiest animal on Earth. These are the CUTEST photos you’ll see all day!

These ten photos show that the Quokka, a small marsupial native to a small corner of southwestern Australia, truly has only “good sides” when it comes to getting its picture taken!

The Quokka poses no threat to humans, and clearly, can be very friendly. Unfortunately, their friendliness may have contributed to their drastic reduction in population after dingos and foxes entered Australia. Now listed as “vulnerable”, the Quokka populations are recovering in some areas, thanks to conservation efforts. Hopefully that means more photos and videos of the adorable little guys will surface on the Internet!
