A few wombat facts:
- Wombats are marsupials found mostly in southern mainland Australia and the island of Tasmania.
- They build extensive underground burrows. Unlike other marsupials, their pouch faces downward, to protect their young from getting buried in soil as they dig.
- A group of wombats is known as a "Wisdom."
- Wombats are crepuscular, meaning they are most active at twilight and evening -- though they are known to venture out of their burrows on overcast days.
- There are three recognized species of wombat: the Common Wombat, the Northern Hairy-Nose Wombat, and the Southern Hairy-Nose Wombat.
- They can live up to 15 years in the wild.
- Wombats produce cube-shaped droppings.
