Wombats are native to Australia. As marsupials, their babies are born early and grow in a pouch outside the mother’s body. According to National Geographic, wombat pouches face the rear instead of the front to stop it from filling with dirt when the mother digs.
Wombats are considered "solitary herbivores" and can grow to the size of medium-sized dogs.
They’re the only animal in the world known to have cube-shaped poop.
