Wombats are completely herbivorous and feed from a variety of grasses, roots, fungi, shrubs, bark and mosses. The wombat has a backwards-facing pouch, so that while digging burrows, dirt does not spill over its young.
Like many Australian mammals, this unique creature is nocturnal. It will sleep most of the day in its burrow, and at dusk or at night will forage for food.
