The happiest animal in the world - The Quokka.  With their smiley faces, dark button eyes, little round ears, chubby cheeks and fluffy bodies its no wonder they are so well known for being cute and adorable.  

Quokkas are very photogenic and rather famous for carefully posed movie star selfies and Instagram shots with the smiley, friendly little wallaby.  Popular celebrities to partake in the trend of a quokka "selfie" include Chris Hemsworth, Demi Lovato, Hugh Jackman, Pete Wentz, Lincoln Lewis, Margot Robbie, Roger Federer and more.  A trip to Rottnest Island is not complete without the Quokka "selfie"! Why do they smile? Its probably to keep cool.  These iconic animals were first discovered by Willem de Vlamingh in 1696 who mistakenly thought he spotted a giant rat. He went on to name the island “Rattennest” which means “Rat’s Nest” in Dutch after his sightings, which was later adapted to the common day, Rottnest Island. 

As the quokka is only found in a few select areas of Western Australia you aren't likely to find a real one in the garden.  However you can have your very own Quokka with our smiley, cute Quokka garden stake.
