33 Wombats spell, all but one of the seven burrows I was studying at the time had some water in them; two, on the lower bank of a creek were impassable, but others were still in use although water was in their entrance tunnels. Presumably these tunnels slanted upwards sufficiently to prevent the water from reaching the sleeping chambers. As soon as the water had seeped away there was an orgy of house-cleaning, as mud, sodden dead leaves, bark and fern fronds were scratched up and kicked out of most of the burrows that were in use at the time.
Usually only the white part of the stem is eaten, the rest being grasped in a front paw and discarded. Wombats are remarkably dexterous with their front paws and often use them to rearrange stems or to remove from their mouths any stems they do not wish to eat. In this grasping action, all the digits are bent over so that the claws are touching the pads on the palm of the paw. The young seed-heads of many species of grasses are also sometimes consumed by wombats, the dexterous front paws frequently being used to remove unwanted stalks from the mouth.
Graeme Finlayson and several colleagues also used radio-tracking to monitor the activities of 16 adult southerns. They found that these wombats used up to five warrens but they generally centred their activity around one or two large, multi-entranced warrens. 8 hectares and the home ranges of both males and females usually overlapped considerably. Northern hairy-nosed wombats have a home range of about six hectares but in the wet seasons this is halved and the wombats are only active for about two hours per night.
