"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
Just the thought of a 6,000 pound, ten-foot wombat is boot-shaking enough. And to think puny humans killed them with sharp sticks.
Deborah Leigh said....Something the size of a Rhino with pouches that could hold a human?!?! It's a safe bet that the SciFy channel has this on the schedule. Then the sequel will pit it against Mega something. Get the popcorn.
Wombats are biggish cute furry creatures that unfortunately feature far too prominently as sad corpses at the roadside.(They can take out your front suspension They are vegetarians Hence the old slang term for a philanderer who likes a meal with his other transitory comforts...WOMBAT...eats roots and leaves.
Eats roots, shoots and leaves.
Deadman, you left out two commas:"Eats, roots, shoots, and leaves."
Personally I think the Australian military could do nothing better than bringing the giant wombat back to life and using it as a secret weapon in combat zones. Oh no, it's the gigantic useless cute beasty again! Run!
I'm sorry, I do not believe that is a giant wombat or even a miniture one. What exactly is a wombat? How would I recognize one walking down the street? This is clearly not a "Batty" animal, so what, exactly is Womby about it?Is this the official FBI mug shot of Wom the Bat? What is he packing? Looks like a slim-downed groundhog or fattened-up squirrel.Or is this creature 20 foot tall, in which case it should easily be spotted and become an extinct Greater Spotted Wombat.
I am with rebeccaH on this one ... let's hear it for the abos 50,000 years ago. They did us a favor.
Robert: My dear fellow! You are quite the skeptic, aren't you?

Alternative uses for wombats. When the Baron lived in Sydney once she and her flatmates had an enthusiastic German student stay over for a few nights. They took her to the Royal Botanic Gardens and she came back even more enthusiastic, talking about everything she'd seen, especially the native wildlife: "... and then, up in the trees, there were the wombats!" Wombats in trees? Turns out she'd seen some fruit bats, asked someone else, who'd rather deviously led her to believe they were wombats...!
