This is my photo of Wiggles. Taken with a camera phone while I was volunteering at the Rockhampton Zoo.
Wiggles is a southern hairy-nosed wombat, NOT a feline-porcine hybrid.
But he really is that cute. Like a furry little piglet.
You can read more here about the Wombat Research Centre where Wiggles was born.
There has been talk of shutting down the Rockhampton Zoo, which would spell trouble for Wiggles, their two chimpanzees and a whole host of other critters. Let’s hope some of the some of the government funding being funneled in their direction will stave of collapse for now.
Here’s another gorgeous photo of him I found online. That little stubby pointy thing is his tail by the way, not anything else.
