Quokkas are one of the friendliest animals in the world and their personality clearly shows it. Their size is very similar to that of squirrels but they have more in common with kangaroos, since they are part of the marsupial family.
They are extremely charismatic and in recent years have become very famous for always having a contagious smile on their face. They can be found in some areas of South Australia.
Its discovery created confusion, since the explorer William Dampier called it that in honor of the animals but mistook them for giant rats, initially it was “Rattennest” (rat nest) but later it was changed to the one everyone knows now.
Being so friendly, it is very common for them to offer them food or to want to take pictures with them, but it is recommended that they give them their space so that they do not feel invaded, unless they take the first step.
