Man Meets Quokka, Quokka Won’t Leave Him Alone


21-year-old Campbell Jones and his girlfriend were out for a bike ride in Rottnest, Australia, when they came across what is possibly the friendliest quokka on Earth. “As I walked back to my bike, the quokka chased after me,” Jones told the West Australian. “I put down the GoPro and it jumped at me as if to say, ‘Come back.’”

When asked on his Instagram page what Jones thinks made the animal come up to him, the man wrote: “My good looks I think.” Quokka saw the man, and it was love at first sight!

Quokka is a marsupial found in Australia. They are known for their inquisitive nature – quokkas have only few natural predators, which allows them to be less fearful around other creatures, and, as it turns out, even approach humans for a selfie or a hug. Still, the species is listed as ‘vulnerable’. We hope that photos like Jones’s will inspire more quokka protection efforts.
