My absolute favorite animal at Cradle Mountain, the Vombatus ursinus (Common Wombat)! I saw nine of them, mostly in the late afternoon, grazing along. I even love their scientific name, ursinus, as they do look like big, cuddly bears.
Three individuals close together.
Found in drain under driveway. Lots of wombat poo around that end of the garden.
The common wombat (Vombatus ursinus), also known as the coarse-haired wombat or bare-nosed wombat, is a marsupial, one of three species of wombats and the only one in the genus Vombatus. The common wombat grows to an average of 98 cm (39 in) long and a weight of 26 kg (57 lb).
