PostPosted: Fri Feb 13, 2009 10:09 pm 
1. The wombat is native only in Australia.

2. The wombat burrows to make itself a habitat.

3. The wombat is a nocturnal creature.

4. Because the wombat is both nocturnal and shy, European settlers didn't even notice a specimen until 10 years after settling the continent.

5. October 22nd is Wombat day.

6. Wombats are marsupial mammals.

7. There are two breeds of wombat: the hairy-nosed wombat and the common wombat.

8. The wombat is an herbivore whose favorite foods include grass and roots.

9. A wombat's burrow may be 100 feet deep.

10. A wombat is about 1 meter long and weighs about 55 pounds.

11. A wombat may live to be 30 years old.

12. Wombats are found mostly along the southern coast of Australia.

13. A small population of a rare breed of wombat, the northern hairy nosed wombat, are found in an isolated region of Queensland.

14. The wombat is the world's largest burrower and the second largest marsupial (behind the kangaroo).

15. The common wombat has a very dextrous front paw, which can be used similarly to how humans use their hands.

16. The mother wombat's pouch faces rearward.

17. Out of all of the marsupial kingdom, the wombat has the most developed brain.

18. The wombat has 24 teeth.

19. Like a rodent, a wombat's teeth continually grow.

20. Wombats are great swimmers.

21. A wombat is able to run 25 miles an hour.

22. A wombat is very stubborn. Because of its great strength and burly physique, it will often plow through an object rather than detour around it.

23. Wombats are solitary animals.

24. A wombat is the only animal that makes cube shaped dung.

25. Three quarters of a wombat's life are spent in his or her burrow.
