The happiest animal on Earth is the quokka.
Quokkas are the only animals known to be always happy.
They have no negative emotions, whatsoever.
They’re not just happier than other animals, they are universally happy regardless of their situation.
Quokkas live in Western Australia and Tasmania.
They are small marsupials, approximately 1 to 2 feet long, with large ears and coarse brown hair.
They look like a cross between a rat and a kangaroo.
Quokkas can make their own Vitamin C in their body, unlike humans who need to obtain vitamin C through the food they eat.
This is why quokkas do not get sick.
Quokkas also have bacteria in their intestines that cannot be found anywhere else on Earth, giving them the ability to digest toxic leaves and fruits that other animals can’t eat.
They are able to get all of their water from the fruit and vegetables they eat which is more efficient than most animals who need to drink water.
Because of their high metabolism, they need to eat constantly.
Why Quokkas Are the Happiest Animals
Quokkas are constantly happy because they have no negative emotions.
They don’t feel anger or sadness, which helps them live in harmony with each other.
When a baby quokka is threatened by another animal, its mother will shoo away the predator instead of fighting it.
Life is great for quokkas who are one of the few animals in the animal kingdom to lead a monogamous lifestyle.
Quokka couples only part when their child leaves home (the quokka has no parental instinct as humans do).
Quokkas can also make chirping sounds just like a bird and they can climb trees.
Quokkas also have no predators which make sense because who would want to eat such an adorable animal?
They are the happiest animal on Earth and it is no wonder why!
