Caddy, the wombat was rescued, raised and released from Kangaloola about 3 years ago. She returned over Summer 2014/15, looking for food, and took up residence in Wom-backpackers, a custom built wombat residence at the shelter. We were treated to the rare sight of her Joey almost falling out of the pouch over Summer. That is a very rare sight. Wombats have a rear facing pouch which allows them to dig without filling the pouch with soil and harming their Joey. The Joey was not seen for a few months until he emerged from the den - you can see what a cutie he turned out to be. If you see a dead or injured wombat, you must check the pouch but remember that the opening is right at the rear end of the animal. If you are unsure what to do, you can always call us 0407 412 750 for advice any time of the day. (Images: Sarah Smith)
