Wombats are short, furry marsupials that can only be found in Australia. They can grow up to 1m long and have short, stubby tails.
Wombats burrow, using their front teeth and sharp claws, and they retreat underground at first sign of a predator or bush fire. They are herbivores.
Fun fact: Wombats carry their young in a pouch which is cleverly designed to face backwards, so that they don't cover their babies with mud while digging!
