Wombat - Scratching
The Koala’s closest living relative, wombats are among the largest burrowing mammals in the world. They normally waddle but can run 40kph. Best of all, they have cube-shaped poo!
Wombats are endemic to (only found in) Australia. They’re marsupials with brown, tan or grey fur and from their stubby tails to their large skulls they can measure 1.3m long and weigh 36kg.
Often described as ‘stout’, ‘sturdy’ or ‘powerful’, they’re expert diggers with short, muscular legs and sharp claws.
