Wombats (Australian Natural History)

Wombats (Australian Natural History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* Over 100 illustrations, including 28 color plates* Drawings by Peter Schouten* New information on the two hairy-nosed species of wombatsOne of Australia's most engaging marsupials, the wombat is also one of the most disparaged and least understood. Often depicted as slow, muddle-headed and clumsy, it can, in fact, outpace a human or a dog over a short distance. Wombats are quick to learn and superbly adapted to their burrowing way of life.This book gives a full account of the wombat's way of life and examines the many hazards that wombats face. Dealing mainly with the Bare-nosed Wombat, Vombatus ursinus, it includes the latest information on the Southern and Northern Hairy-nosed Wombats, Lasiorhinus latifrons and Lasiorhiunus krefftii, among the world's most endangered animals. The book also gives practical advice on rearing orphan wombats.
