Wombats are amongst the world’s largest burrowing animals. They are mainly nocturnal and generally solitary creatures. They poop cubes, have ever growing teeth, use their butts as their main form of defence and can run as fast as a human! Mums give birth to just one joey and they are each others world for a couple of years.
Wombats are the second largest marsupials in Australia. Their teeth keep growing continually and they are herbivores.
They can run at speeds up to 40 kilometres per hour ! When running away from predators like Tasmanian devils and dingos, wombats rely on their super sturdy rumps to protect them. Their rear-ends are mostly cartilage, which makes them more resistant to bites and scratches.
A group of Wombats is called a “wisdom”!!!
Wombats closest relatives are koala's as both animals have pouches that open towards the rear. The direction of the pouch means the joey is protected from dirt if the mother is digging.
