Feeding a farting wombat - Natural World 2016: Episode 5 Preview - BBC Two

Let 'er rip Pete! Pete, the wombat may look cute and all but watch out for those chompers! He chewed through that corn “like a beaver chewing through wood.” Who knew this was their favourite treat. Interesting creatures...

Fast Fact: Wombats, native to Australia, have rodent-like front teeth and powerful claws but did you know, the one distinctive adaptation of wombats is their backwards pouch? The advantage of a backwards-facing pouch is that when digging, the wombat does not gather soil in its pouch over its young.

A hairy nosed wombat called Pete has his favourite snack, sweetcorn.
