  1. My dad used to call me and my sister ‘Wombat’ as a petname. In fact, still does. (I am 35, BTW.) Sadly, we were never as adorable as Sydney.

    Where is the hairy nose???

  3. dgerish says:

    Must get a wombat. In the second Phryne Fisher mystery novel, Flying Too High, a wombat plays a wonderful part. If you’ve enjoyed Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, you’ll like the novels too.

  4. it looks like totoro

  5. JenDeyan says:

    It hardly seems possible but the babeh wombat is even cuter next to its momma.

  6. Emmberrann says:

    I lerves me some wombatses! Syd is Aderables.

  7. joydox says:

    I’m happy the wombats are loved.

  8. The stubby bow-leggedness of both mamma and baby is impossible to resist. I need to snorgle them now.

  9. doomchild says:

    I have a fever… and the only cure is more wombat.

  10. Wombats are the BEST thing to trip over when on a school camp. Makes me proud to be an Aussie!

  11. jlamusings says:

    Adorbs! So pudgey & stumpy…Aussies, I am jealous that I didn’t get to trip over anything that cute at summer camp.

  12. I can’t tell who’s cuter. Bebeh wombat or super pudgy mama wombat.
