Bare-Nosed Wombat

Bare-Nosed Wombat

The bare-nosed wombat, or common wombat, lives in southeastern Australia – through Victoria, Tasmania and along the coast and ranges of New South Wales. These cute little critters are prime digging machines and excavate intricate burrows in which to sleep and take shelter from the raging summer heat. They are mostly nocturnal, but can be seen early in the morning or late in the afternoon with a bit of luck.
