Be very careful with your young wombat. Never feed a wombat cow's milk, or play him Rolf Harris videos.

The worst thing you can do in the company of a young wombat is to wear a beard and open a bottle of milk while singing 'Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport'.

Actually, that's three things, but it only goes to strengthen my argument.

Remember: a wombat is not just for Whitsuntide. They are to be treasured all through the year.

If only this advice had been available to me sooner.
My Wombat is locked in a cage in the garden, we are unable to go near him! My husband insited on playing him Rolf Harris songs, and now he is rabid. What do we do?

Have you got a vinyl copy of "My Boomerang Won't Come Back" by Charlie Drake?

I find that wombats are perfect for hitting wombles.

If 42 is the answer, the question is if 24 looks in the mirror, who does she see?

In the late 60's I shared an apartment with an avowed wombat. All she did at night was have sex with her accordian while singing the latest Janis Joplin hits. Drove me crazy because I was into the Kingston Trio at the time.

I'm trying to think, but nothing happens.

Ah, that explains it. Mind you, marsupials can be handy - somewhere to keep your tobacco, for a start.

Once you've started, it's too late, but that's the way of it with marsupials.

I thought that wombats was a state of mind, not a marsupial. If I understand you, having a pouch to carry your young is the defining ingredient. This is complete bullshit. I have a pouch, but I have never carried nothing in it. Please redefine marsupial.

Heavens!

These creatures are more strange than their name, they look like a gerbil the size of a Labrador.

Someone should train them to run in those metal balls that Mexican motorcyclists drive around in the circus.

No. Having a pouch to keep tobacco in is the defining ingredient.

I didn't realise you were an empty-pouched marsupial.

Wombats have cubic faeces and a backwards facing pouch to avoid filling it with dirt as they move through tunnels.

And their young have suckers instead of feet to stop themselves falling out.

These suckers change into proper Wombat feet, with toes similar in shape to cricket stumps, the minute they leave the pouch.

The actual timing of the pouch release depends on the stickiness of the suckers.............

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.
And Hell followed with him........

They do seem large to make tunnels, it would be much easier if they just took the Tube like everyone else.

A lot of them do, if the last time I was in London is any guide.

Yes of course Erskin.

While we are at it and not to change the subject but other macropods such as the long-nosed potaroo are also deserving of attention.

I kept one for a pet for many years and had him house trained like a small dog, charming creature, he used to sleep at my feet while I wrote my letters.
