Wombat in Potoroo Palace

Before writing this post, I sent this picture to my friend in Russia and got just an awesome reply «What the hell is this?»

Wombat in Potoroo place, NSW

After a short introduction to animals’ world of Australia and a short (40-45 minutes) lecture on that topic I got a little bit more fitting description concluded in its comparison with a mole.

Once again, Australia is unique place. Where else can survive a beast like koala, whose defense means are limited to everyday 20-hours sleep or a «grasshopper» having two meters in height? Moreover, anyone having enough patience can familiarize himself with wild animals in their own habitat without the risk of being treated as a potential lunch. However, for those without that great patience or just not lucky enough Australia offers a wide range of parks and sanctuarys where symbols of Australia’s animal world just sit and wait them to come and treat them with some tasty food.

As it already happened to us, we found a place like that somewhere in the middle of nowhere between Merimbula and Bega. The place is called «Potoroo palace» because animals called Potoroos still live in that area. Potoroo is another Australian marsupial, not bigger than cat and looks like a mouse on stilts.

Oh right then, let’s go back to our mole. It is burrowing animal indeed. And it is world biggest burrowing animal; its adult spices can grow up to 25-40 kilos in weight still being able to dig burrows. Although, we were quite happy to see baby wombats that were brought to Potoroo Palace just a couple a days before we got there.

I can hardly describe what adult wombat looks like… I can only recall ottoman or something like that — it is big, fury and has four legs at corners of its body. It is truly amazing that being that big and heavy they still can dig burrows big enough for themselves! And they do it fast — while park officer was busy showing us one baby wombat, his sister made a mine and got out of the enclosure. Thankfully, she was immediately caught and returned to aviary, leaving park staff with not easy task of finding something that could withstand wombat’s tunneling machine for at least two hours. I guess a sheet of two-millimeters steel would be perfect.

Anyway, another baby wombat was caught and shown to us.

Looks like a mouse, isn’t it? I would not believe that this awkward creature could run that fast if I did not see it myself — when she was left to the ground, she disappeared in a burrow in less than one second.

Potoroo palace also has some big wombats in a designated enclosure with concrete walls, but did not see them — they were sleeping in their comfortable burrows, entrance to which looked like a shell crater.

Wombats aren’t the only residents of Potoroo Palace deserving attention, but I bet they are most funny. I will write about other creatures living there in a next few posts; in the meantime I will try to remember where exactly this Potoroo palace is located and add a map to this post.
