Common Wombat

Series of dimensioned side elevation illustrations of the Common Wombat

The Wombat (Vombatus ursinus) is a stocky and seemingly tailless burrower often found in the hilly countryside (of Australia). The Common Wombat has coarse hair, and gritty nose pad while the hairy-nosed wombat has silky fur, pointed ears, and a hairy nose pad.

A physical characteristic special to this marsupial is its growing, rootless teeth adapted to be durable given their diet. Herbivorous and mainly nocturnal, the Wombat will burrow itself in cultivated fields and feed on grasses, shrubs, and inner barks of trees. At times, rabbits will take shelter in the burrows of these marsupials.

Common Wombats have a shoulder height of 24”-28” (61-71 cm), body length between 40”-45” (102-114 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 45-75 lb (20-34 kg). The tail of the Common Wombat is 1”-2.5” (2.5-6.4 cm) in length. Common Wombats have a typical lifespan of 5-12 years in the wild and up to 20-30 years when protected in captivity.

Marsupials are mammals characterized by the pouch the mother has for raising and protecting her young. Marsupials are most commonly associated with Austrailia, where Kangaroos and Koalas are found, but marsupials, specifically the opposum, are also found in North, Central, and South America.
