Matilda the Wombat

We had a phone call from Anne today telling us that we had to call in for a quick visit. They had a very special visitor... A baby Wombat!

It was rescued from the side of the road by their friend Peter and is being bottle fed with formula from the vet until it is old enough to be released back into the wild.

She was the funniest little thing. Small and solid like a rugby ball and determined to wriggle into any gaps she could find in our clothing. Looking for her Mums pouch I guess! The kids had a lovely time cuddling her and were sad to say goodbye. I am guessing that she will be a lot bigger the next time we get to see her!
