Another recent arrival

June 8, 2011

Just a few days after photographing a young wombat in its mother’s pouch (see previous post: New arrival at Strath Creek), our remote camera detected another wombat with young in tow on the other side of the same 40 ha property. The home range of a Common Wombat has been reported as varying between 5 and 23 ha, but there can be considerable overlap between adjacent territories.

Seen here, after sniffing our scent lure, the mother leads her youngster away to greener pastures. The video may take a few moments to load.
