Animal of the day – 3/24/2011 – The Wombat

The Wombat

The animal of the day is the Wombat. (Did you know: This unique marsupial has a backwards facing pouch! This is a special adaptation so that dirt doesn’t get in it’s babies face while it digs it’s burrows.

Their rear end has a particularly thick hide which it uses to plug up it’s burrows when escaping from predators! And wombats have been known to attack humans [in self-defense?].

Wombat attack? Believe it! http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2010/04/06/2865005.htm

    hi Wombat, you’re so cute and so thoughtful…you don’t want dirt in your babie’s face! You wouldn’t attack anyone right? Unless they STEPPED on you!
