We met this cute baby wombat at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary this week.
She didn’t want to come out of her burrow. It took three keepers to wake her up and get her to join the tour. She is a fourteen month old orphan, currently happy to be cuddled and patted.
In another year, she will hit the teenage years and become independent of humans, more aggressive, which will indicate the time to release her back into the wild.
After her photo shoot with the keeper, she had a stretch.
She went for a walk.
She had a scratch.
Then headed back to bed.
I was totally enthralled by this little Aussie marsupial. She has a perfect “face” for this week’s photo challenge.
