Work on the wombat enclosure – a love barrier

Up-grade to the wombat enclosureWhen a male wombat gets amorous he’s hard to stop. So, in the interest of our female wombats, who may not be responsive to his advances we are installing visual love barriers in our wombat enclosures.  However, we are ever hopeful we will be successful in breeding wombats here at Billabong Zoo. If you haven’t had the chance be sure to visit the wombats and see the unique underground viewing area where you can see our four wombats – 2 species  –  Common wombats and 2 Southern Hairy-Nosed wombats sleeping  – which they do a lot of during the day. Did you know? The entrance to the female Wombat’s pouch faces backwards. This is to prevent dirt from entering it when she is burrowing.
