People In Australia Have Started Taking Selfies With Quokkas, And The Results Are Brilliant.

There’s a new trend invading social media, and it may be the cutest one yet. Tourists in Rottnest Island, Australia, have been posting one #quokkaselfie after another with the ball of fluff that is the quokka. Although capable of violence when provoked, these marsupials are #blessed with smiling faces, earning them the title of “the happiest animals in the world.”

Considered to be vulnerable — one step below extinct — authorities will slap a $300 fine on anybody caught handling them. This hasn’t stopped people from filling our Instagram and Twitter feeds with much needed doses of quokka.
