Wombats
H
i, I’m a hairy-nosed wombat. I live in Australia and I’m a marsupial. When my baby is born it is very, very tiny. It climbs into my pouch and lives there until it is old enough to leave my pouch for a short time. Each day it goes out into the world and then comes back into my pouch to drink and sleep.

I’m 33cms tall and almost 1metre long. I weigh around 35kgs. I have short powerful legs and strong claws for digging. I use my front legs to dig a burrow and that is where I sleep. Usually I sleep during the day and look for food at night. I’m a vegetarian.

I’m one of Australia’s most endangered marsupials.
