In my childhood, a neighbour had a baby wombat. It was great fun. It charged around their house like a bull on steroids. I wonder what happened to it.
Somewhere in the mists of Australian tv history was Fatso the Wombat, but I don't remember.
There are three varieties of wombats in Australia. We see the common southern wombat, but one of the wombat species is on the endangered list, that is is the northern hairy nosed wombat. Charlie Downunder in Oz tells us all about it.
