KING ISLAND WOMBAT, 23 April, 1802

  • KING ISLAND WOMBAT, 23 April, 1802
Early artists were given little of the precious time on shore, often having the capture or kill examples to continue their scientific record on board ship.  Here is acute evidence of marsupials in their habitat: wombats have  only one young in their pouch, not a  clutch of pups, and being a robust burrowing animal do not have pouches forward opening ( as they would fill with the burrowed soil!)
