Wombats are Australian marsupials. The scientific name for wombats is vombats ursinus. Wombats have small legs and tough claws to dig up their burrows. They have small tails and tiny eyes. Wombats’ fur colour is brown and their noses are hairy.

Wombats have two species in Australia. The first is a hairy nose wombat. The second one is a bare nose wombat.

Wombats are marsupial mammals. Marsupials have pouches like kangaroos but the baby come out backwards not frontwards. Mammals are warm blooded so are wombats.

Wombats are unusually strong Australian animals.
