The Wombat (Vombatidae) with its bear-like appearance is one of the nocturnal marsupials and lives exclusively in southern and eastern Australia. Being a herbivore, it belongs to the largest burrowing mammals in general. With its sharp claws it digs caves and tunnels up to 20 m long and 3.5 m deep. As most pouched animals the Common Wombat is a solitary. However, if the area they inhabit - it can vary from 5 to 25 ha - overlaps with each other Wombats, the caves are also shared with each other. Hence also small colonies can be found. It might depend on the species.

The name "Wombat" comes from the language of the Aborigines of New South Wales. They called them - depending on the area - "Womback" or "Womat".

While the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat living in a small park in Queensland belongs to the most endangered species - it is said that only about 100 animals are still existing - the other two species are not threatened. Nevertheless, ranchers and farmers do not welcome Wombats much because of their large digging activity.

Of course, wombats do have a pouch in which the immature off-spring crawls and spends about six months. After that it remains for another year with the mother. Usually only one off-spring gets nurtured.

Our young wombat did crwal already outside the ouch but still looks to be near to the mother. But being close to some playmates or a friend is welcome too. While playing with crative imagination many bcaves can be digged beneath cushions and blankets, or one can cuddle with each other and dream about great adventures.
