New arrival at Strath Creek

June 4, 2011

This female Common Wombat (Vombatus ursinus) has been a regular visitor to a Strath Creek property for several years. She seems to be quite healthy, and has produced a number of young over the years.

 

 

 

 

Her most recent offspring can be seen in this photo, with its nose and one foot protruding from the rear-opening pouch. The young stay in the pouch for at least 6 months and then at heel with the mother until about 18-20 months old.

 

Here is what is thought to be the same wombat with her young in late 2005.
