Cute wombats

Wombats are marsupials, just like kangaroos.  Wombats also have pouches, but their pouches are facing the other way than a kangaroos pouches.  Wombats are one of the largest burrowing animals in the world! Wombats can be black, brown, and cream color.  Wombats have a large pad on their rump (back), they use that pad for protection, if a predator is tries to attack the wombat, the wombat will use that pad to crush the head of that predator on the top of the burrow.  Wombats eat lots of vegetation and grasses.  they can weigh up to 40-80 pounds, the length of  an adult wombat can be 30 inches long.

I like the wombat because they are so cute!
