Home / Funny / Animals / Cute Quokka Takes Selfie With Biker And Continues To Follow Him


During a bike ride on Rottnest Island, located off the coast of Western Australia, Campbell Jones and his girlfriend came across the cutest encounter. 

Known for its scenic, seaside landscape, warm weather, and ample wildlife, the Rottnest Island is still the most popular for its indigenous quokka population. During the couple's bike route, the pair came across a very curious and adorable quokka. So they decided to take some snaps with him. 

The quokka is known as "the happiest animal on Earth", with its adorable smile and curious personality. After meeting one on the bike trail, Jones now knows just why. 

When Jones got off his bike to snap some selfies with the quokka, his new furry friend was more than happy to pose for the pictures. He even smiled for a selfie. 

As Jones started to wrap up the impromptu photoshoot, it was made very clear by the mischievous quokka that he wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to the friendly biker.

"As I walked back to my bike, the quokka chased after me. I put down the GoPro, and it jumped at me as if to say come 'come back.'"

Campbell at least captured a picture-perfect shot of the affectionate quokka during his mid-leap with an adorable smile. 

Jones is, however, not the first and the only Rottnest Island visitor to catch a selfie with the adorable animals.

Seeing that the cuddly creatures have few natural predators, they aren't fearful of humans. This makes them very approachable so, when you come across one of these furry friends along the way, stop and say hi.
