But really, who would complain?

While out for a bike ride with his girlfriend in Rottnest, Australia, 21-year-old Campbell Jones became acquainted with possibly the friendliest quokka on Earth. The cyclist told the West Australian:

?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 back.’?

It would seem as if it were love at first site for the Quokka. And humorously, Jones agrees. When asked what made the Quokka approach him, Jones replied: ?My good looks I think.?

As was recently reported, Quokkas are quite inquisitive animals who in many cases aren?t abashed to approaching humans. With few natural predators, they are less fearful than many wild animals.

Because the photos of Jones and the Quokka are making rounds on social media, one would hope that the exposure helps raise awareness for the ?vulnerable? animal and inspire more protection efforts.

The animal, which is listed as ?vulnerable?, doesn?t have many natural predators, therefore is friendly than most wild creatures.
