Baby Wombat

Today's post is about a baby wombat. This little guy was orphaned when his parent was killed in a road accident. As stated before, road accidents kill a lot of wildlife each year. This common wombat named Hugo, spends a lot of time at home with his carer growing up, and on the day I was lucky to see him up and about. He really does love his family and he is almost inseparable from any humans that come nearby. He loves attention and likes a good pat too. Surprisingly the fur is course, like a paintbrush. Hugo's story is heartwarming, and I believe Australians can do more to help out our native wildlife.
