Wombat. It looks like a big cuddly teddy bear, but with a pouch.

Narawntapu National Park: A pristine wilderness area regarded as one of the best places in Tasmania to see wildlife in its natural surroundings. There are regular sightings of wombats, wallabies, eastern grey kangaroos, pademelons, bettongs, quolls, a myriad bird life and Tasmania's three spectacular snake species. This was also the first release sight for Tasmanian devils returned to the wild in 2016.

explosionsoflife: When viewed head-on, the southern hairy-nosed ****wombat (Lasiorhinus latifrons) looks like a combination of a normal wombat and a pig, leading my friend to dub these creatures “pigbats.” With even shorter legs than their close relatives, common wombats (Vombatus ursinus), the southern hairy-nosed wombat is the smallest of the three known species of wombats. They graze on grasses and sedges and are efficient at maintaining their weight even with low quality food.
