Thirty days after mating the wombat female gives birth to a bean-sized baby weighing one gram. The baby uses its front legs to drag itself into the pouch, where it stays between six and ten months.
An adult Common Wombat may weigh between 22 and 40 kg. It is a nocturnal animal, spending two-thirds of its life underground, emerging to eat grass and other plants. The wombat we saw one night near our holiday house, was very slow and didn't even attempt to run away.

Please don't forget to refer to the ABC Wednesday meme either by mentioning Denise Nesbitt as the creator, or by showing the logo. It sometimes happens that a person uses a subject which has nothing to do with the letter of the week, and he or she doesn't refer to the ABC logo or to Denise Nesbitt either.
