The final release in this cute collectable series depicts a baby wombat. Wombats are short-legged marsupials native to Australia. Nocturnal by nature, the animal emerges at night to feed on grasses, roots and bark.
Wombats are generally not seen, but leave ample evidence of their passage. The wombat also has a backwards-facing pouch, so that while digging burrows, dirt does not spill over its young.
