The Wombat. What is Wombat? It 'a funny marsupial, squat and stocky, who lives in Australia. It can weigh up to 35 kg and reach 1 meter in length. They dig tunnels and feed on roots, weeds and bark. But two things, in particular, make funny this animal:
1) They have a slooow metabolism ... so slow that to complete the digestion they takes 2 weeks! It 'a smart evolutionary strategy that allows them to survive in arid region and famine.
2) But the funniest thing is that their main defense is represented by their big butt (yes, you read that right!). They have a hard and callous ass. When they are attacked, wombats take refuge in the nearest gallery and use their ass as a cap, thereby blocking access even the most determined pursuers.
The two models I am presenting today (small and large) are produced by the Science & Nature, for the series "Animals of Australia".

Great walkaround, and thankyou for the description Very Happy
What a strange animal, looking like a cross between a bear and a guineapig, but being quite unique Shocked

Funny thing is, I never thought about this critter being that large...now I am much wiser study

Well, then we know why big butts can be really useful cheers
