Wombats are related to koala bears but, unlike the koala’s soft downy fur, their fur is hard and bristly sloping backwards for ease of burrowing.

This shot was taken at Featherdale Wildlife Park, Sydney, using an HP Photosmart E327 point and shoot camera.

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
My interests are broad in both subject & style leading to a diverse portfolio – check out My Directory at http://www.missmoneypenny.talktalk.net/ to see just how varied my style & products are.
I hope you enjoy your visit, my sites have been created with you in mind.

    Sweet little thing…Nice shot!

  • He wasn’t so little :O) When we first got to his enclosure he was fast asleep. His handler called him to no avail so she opened a packet of Monster Much crisps – I’ve never seen an animal move so fast in my life, lol. Thanks for making it a fave.
