What is the difference between a common wombat and a northern hairy nosed wombat?
There are several differences between the Norhern Hairy nosed wombat and the Common wombat. The Common wombat lacks the distinctly hairy nose of either the Northern Hairy nosed wombat or the Southern Hairy nosed wombat. The Common wombat is the smallest of the three wombat species, while the Northern Hairy nosed wombat is the largest of the three. The Common wombat's ears are not as pointed as the Northern Hairy nosed wombat's ears. The Common wombat has a conservation status of Vulnerable, but the Northern Hairy nosed wombat is Critically Endangered. The Common wombat is found throughout southeastern Australia and the island state of Tasmania, while the Northern Hairy nosed wombat is now restricted to one protected enclosure in western Queensland, within Epping Forest National Park. The Common wombat feeds on grasses, sedges and tubers, but the Northern Hairy nosed wombat is more likely to feed on just native grasses. The Northern Hairy nosed wombat has a much squarer muzzle than the Common wombat.
