Wombat belongs to the group of marsupials and can be found in the coastal regions of South-Eastern Australia and the islands surrounding it. Wombats prefer to live in open grasslands and eucalyptus forests. The species of wombat is divided into two categories- hairy-nosed wombats and bare-nosed wombats. These animals are considered as pests in some parts of Australia, as they ruin their crops and fences. To protect their agricultural land, farmers often kill these animals. Habitat loss is another threat to these animals that is making them almost extinct in this region.
