Fun facts about the wombat
Hey there, Luka and I had some fun chatting about wombats and had a good laugh. Hope you enjoy it!
Did you know that wombat poop is cube-shaped?
The wombats intestines digest the poop in a certain way so that it comes out square. This makes it easier to mark its territory by stopping the poop from rolling away.
Where do wombats live?
Wombats live in burrows. These burrows have multiple entry points and can be 20-30 metres long. Other smaller animals have been known to seek refuge in these burrows during bushfires.
Did you know that wombats bottoms keep them safe?
Their bottoms are made out of strong cartilage which protects them if an animal tries to enter into their burrow to attack them.
What do you call a group of wombats?
A group of wombats is called a mob or wisdom. But we like to say wisdom because it just sounds smarter!
