Vombatidae -Wombats

These little fuzzy chunky cuties spend their day mowing the grass in the temperate forests of Australia

The family of wombats contains three species, all native to Australia. They look like miniature bears, but they share order Diprotodontia with koalas & kangaroos. Also, even though they look short and stout, they are, in fact, the largest burrowing animals on the planet, as well as the second-largest marsupials (pouched mammals).

Wombats are territorial and mark their range by scattering cube-shaped feces everywhere. Due to their unique shape are not prone to rolling on slippery slopes. They prefer to inhabit and excellently serve the purpose of marking territory by staying in its place. Talk about being too much!
