But why stop at just one quokka when you can have more?

These little guys are so cute and cuddly, you’ll easily forget all the world’s troubles.

But while all quokkas are relatively friendly, this one is a cut above the rest!

Campbell Jones was out for an afternoon bike ride with his girlfriend when they came across an adorable quokka that instantly fell in love with the 21-year-old man. After stopping to get a quick picture with the tiny critter, Jones made an attempt to hop back on his bike and continue about his day. The quokka had other plans.

This overly friendly quokka greeted Jones with open arms and it was love at first sight.

But when Jones tried to ride away, the quokka chased after him in an attempt to win back his new best friend.

When asked why the quokka was drawn to him, Jones was quick to joke, “My good looks I think.”
