Allow me to tell you a few things I recently learned about wombat scat from my eight year old son.
Wombats communicate with each other by way of their droppings, or scat.
A single wombat can leave over one hundred droppings in a night (they sure have a lot to say!).
Cube like in shape so it won’t roll off rocks, a wombat’s scat tells many tales.
This weekend Cody created a wombat diorama that he will present to his class and that will be on display this Thursday, the night of his class’s Australian play. He carefully labeled the various parts of the wombat habitat, making sure that the dark colored, cube like scat was front and center and clearly labeled.
Carter, who was an active observer during the diorama making, disappeared as the project was wrapping up.
Then I heard his voice from down the hallway.
carter: Momma!! Momma, I am scatting!!
Yup, he was in the bathroom…
