Wombat (Vombatus ursinus)

Habitat: The common wombat is found in forested areas of South Eastern Australia.
Diet: Wombats graze on native grasses, sedges, herbs, bark and roots.

Interesting Wombat Facts:
Nicknamed 'Bulldozers of the Bush', wombats are great diggers and can move most things in their path, including farmer's fences. Female wombat pouches face backwards, so when they dig, their young are protected from debris.
