What is a Wombat?
Vombatus Ursinus or "Wombats" are herbivore marsupials of the Vombatidae family, native to Australia and Tasmania. They are fluffy quadrupeds of about 1 m (40 in) in length with small stubby tails and legs and a muscular body. They are adaptable to various habitats and are found in forested, mountainous, and heathland areas. Their young are called Joeys and live in a pouch typical of marsupials, like kangaroos, for about 6 months.
