If you've ever wondered which is the cutest and happiest animal in the world, that quokka, or at least it seems for his perpetual smile. This Australian marsupial has a very particular curvature in its snout that makes it seem that it is always smiling, it is also very sociable, affectionate and active.
These are the reasons why quokka has become a star of the selfies of tourists traveling to Australia. In addition to its beautiful face, its little hands similar to a kangaroo, its small size, its fur and its rounded body have captivated all those who have been able to approach one.
But, unfortunately, the quokka seems to be doomed to suffer a tragic fate: that of extinction. The females of this animal can only give birth to one offspring per year, this fact, added to the deforestation and the fires that its habitat is suffering, can lead all its species to disappear forever.
