15 Pics Of The Most Womderful Wombats

Wombats are one of the most underrated cutest animals ever. They have an internet following, kind of like the love that sloths have received over recent years but less trendy. Wombats are a strange mix in that they look like what would happen if a kangaroo and a koala and a pig got together and had a baby. Only in Australia, I tell ya. One of my best friends is obsessed with wombats and the moment I told her I was making this list, she was already blowing up my phone with some of the examples you will find below!

Wombats are clearly a very cuddly bunch! They were born for hugging and digging, basically. Unlike kangaroos, wombats have their pouches on their backs so that they can dig in the ground without harming or dirtying their young. Unique and sweet creatures, you will find below 15 pictures that show why wombats are completely underrated!

Wombat And Koala Strike Up Friendship During Lockdown

Be still our tender hearts! There is absolutely nothing more precious than when two different animal species become best friends! 

During the COVID-19 lockdown at the Australian Wildlife Park, a koala named, Elsa, and a wombat named, Hope, shared an enclosure together. 

It was during that time that they two struck up the most adorable friendship. They're now being called, "lockdown BFFs." The two marsupials were hand raised by the keepers at the Australia Reptile Park, wombats are actually the closest relative species to the koala, so their keepers figured it would be a friendship match in heaven... they were right. 

Now that the park has re-opened, the keepers are making sure that the two are able to see each other every day!
