The quokka is a marsupial from the smaller islands (e.g., Bald Island) off the coast of Western Australia.

The animal looks like a baby kangaroo and appears to be smiling at all times — it possesses a natural and cheerful grin.

There’s even a book dedicated to the so-called “world’s happiest animal” called The Quokka’s Guide to Happiness by wildlife photographer Alex Cearns.

Just take a look at these cuties.
