4 Reason Why Wombats Are Better Than Koalas and Kangaroos

I’m guessing you’ve heard of Australia’s famous cuddly  koalas and kangaroos. But I bet you’ve never heard of the lesser-known hero—the wombat. If you’re curious, here’s 4 reasons why the equally adorable wombats beat koalas and kangaroos any day.

1. They’re Giant Furballs

2. They Keep a Low Profile

At least in America, that is. Everyone’s heard about kangaroos and koalas. They’re so last year.  Who ever heard of a wombat before? Now that I have,  just want to take one home with me. I hope they play nice with scruffy shih-tzus.

3. They Have Their Own Day

Take that you other Aussie marsupials! These adorable little guys have their own Wombat Day, also known as Hug a Wombie Day or Wombats of the World Unite Day.  It’s also on my birthday, but hey, I’m willing to share. Especially if someone wants to buy me a new pet. 😉

4. They Dance!

You guessed it, I saved the best for last. These little, and sometimes big, ground crawlers are usually friendly and love to jump and play. Don’t take my word for it. See for yourself:
