Australia Zoo has recently welcomed a new wombat joey and his mum Poa, couldn’t be more proud!
In conjunction with Byron Bay Cookies, we put the call out for name suggestions from anyone who loves wombats, and of course cookies! There were some amazing ideas, but ultimately we felt our new baby looked just like a JIMMY.
Jimmy is a healthy little boy and loves exploring his home at Australia Zoo with his mum, Poa. He is extremely playful and has lots of energy for a little wombat. Jimmy has been venturing out of the pouch for the past few weeks; unlike other pouches, a wombat pouch faces backwards so the babies don’t get dirt in their face when mum is digging a burrow!
You can visit Jimmy and Poa right here at Australia Zoo and keep up-to-date on all their antics on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
