Wombat Facts â€¢ Australia has three types of wombats, the endangered hairy-nosed in Queensland, the bare-nosed in NSW and Victoria, and the southern hairy-nosed mainly in SA. â€¢ Wombats have been known to run at 40 km an hour over short distances. Wombat teeth grow all the time, wearing down on roots and dirt. â€¢ As a digging marsupial, wombats have a backwards-facing pouch and it takes 2 years before the joey is big enough to leave his mum and set out on his own. â€¢ Bare-nosed wombats weigh in at around 20 kg. â€¢ Wombats can be grey, black or brown and all colours in between. There are a very small number of albino wombats. â€¢ Wombats sleep on their side and often end up on their back with all feet in the air.
