Flinders Island Wombat

in photofeed •  16 days ago

A Flinders Island Wombat (Vombatus ursinus) and her baby on Maria Island. A muscular marsupial that digs extensive burrows. Unlike other marsupials it has a backwards facing pouch so that when digging it does not gather soil in its pouch over its young.

Beautiful animals, which are the size, because the picture looks like it would be quite large.


They are about the same as a medium size pig


Wow are cute, overgrown hamsters :)

Not sure; it is illegal in Australia to have native animals as pets so I have no experience with that.

Totes adorbs!
