Don't let their pudgy looks fool you. Wombats get "rather nasty" when stepped on. (Sky News, April 6, 2010) The wombat featured in that article seems to have had mange, which made it particularly testy.
Wombats Taking Over the World?That wrathful wombat may be just the tip of the iceberg. From the looks of it, Wombats may be taking over the world. Here's a sample of what I found:
- "Wombat Car Company"
- The Wombat Bar
Brooklyn, New York
- Wombats Hostels
Berlin, Munich, Vienna
Or, maybe folks think that "wombat" is a cool name. That explanation has my vote.
