I’m a Northern Hairy Nosed Wombat

I’m fluffy, cute and some say rather fat

I have pointy ears and a medium size

And dark black patches round my eyes


I am kept in wildlife parks

Away from dogs and noisy barks

These places are in Queensland

My only places on this land


I eat grasses, weeds and roots

Fighting them off from brutes

Kangaroos coming after me

I’m not sharing my food, meanie!


Wild dogs, habitat loss, foxes, too

I am hunted all night through

Life is very dangerous for me

I’m one of the last left, see?


Saving me will be very tricky

Do some research on wiki

Report the sightings of me, please

And put our worry at ease
