Campbell Jones, 22, has managed to get selfies with the furry creatures, and captures them eating leaves and happily jumping up and down.

Quokkas can be found in islands off of the coast of Western Australia, including Rottnest Island, and are a small plant-eating mammal member of an Australasian family which includes kangaroos and wallabies.

Campbell, from Landsdale, Western Australia, said: “I was in Rottnest Island and I spotted some Quokkas so decided to get a few selfies with them.

“They were so friendly that when I went to walk away, they chased me down and wouldn’t let me leave

“They were jumping, leaping and hugging me to either get food from me or just to show their love.

“It is almost impossible not to feel pure joy when hanging out with the Quokkas because they seem to be always smiling and are not afraid of humans.

“There is no other animal that seems to be so innocent and friendly in the cutest of ways.

“You can’t help but just laugh at the cute expressions they make, and being able to snag some selfies with them is pretty cool – some of their expressions would make for some good memes.”
