Polly, a bundle of energy 2018 to jan 2021
Little Polly came to us on Saturday 28th April with her buddy Winnie, both very well cared for and just absolute buddies. She's just 3.5 kg so starting to get out of mum's pouch and she is now just getting used to her new box and new mum and dad to care for her. Polly loves a cuddle will get on your lap and melp asleep with her fist balled up next to her face and she's of course a calendar girl. She has buddied up with Winnie and they are inseperable. october 2018 Winnie and Polly are now in Class 2 in middle school, a snuggly shed attached to the wombatorium. When they first moved down with their wombat box and bags we got some really bad winds which really freaked them out, with them hiding in the shed burrow. They love their bottles and you can see we got some rain and Pollys nose is covered in mud from digging in her burrow. They getting quite big now and love theirgrass. Poor Polly was quite depressed when Winnie became sick and they were seperated with winnie in a wombat hospital box inside for 10 days. Both together again and comfortable in each others company. They love pulling the cover off their box and sleeping in the morning sun on it!
Polly has been a lovely wombat and was happily buddied with Winnie. Both were kept in care much longer than planned due to the bushfires and aftermath, and as they matured some argumentative hissing developed. Polly is now released and she has quite a personality. Still getting her bearings in the big wild world, she is sometimes found late at night curled up asleep somewhere around the house. She stands her ground but we think Star Man has been a bit amorous and they can often be heard chasing each other around late at night.
