Wombat Crossing by jonathondeans Wombat Crossing by jonathondeans
Even for someone who travels out to the country regularly, this was a bit of an unusual sign - a warning about wombats being on the road.

Wombats are just about the worst animal you can hit; they curl up into a immovable ball, as strong as concrete, and the car always comes off second best.

Just another of life's little dangers in this, the most beautiful country on the planet :D

I've never ever seen one of those signs! Have to say it's a very cool sign indeed and the clouds make this photo awesome.

Good on the Wombats, lol. Little troopers!!

Koalas and wombats are pretty docile, so there's not much risk in touching or patting them (unless they think you're stealing their food or their children or something). I've never even seen an angry koala.

The main danger is that they might pee on you :P

I wish we had wombats over here, so we could have wombat crossing signs... instead I get Bigfoot Crossing signs, haha.

I'm totally using this!
