Sounds & Noises That Wombats Produce

Do you know how wombats sounds like? And most people will answer with a “no”.


Because we don’t really get to hear or see a wombat in the wild that much. People are not also aware of how a wombat sounds like or what kinds of sounds and noises a wombat makes.

Mainly, wombats produces a sucking sound. The sucking sound is like the wombat’s default sound.

But like humans and other animals, wombats also produce different kinds of sounds depending on what kind of activity they are engaged to or depending on what they’re feeling.

Here are some of the sounds/noise that a wombat produce:
– Wombats tend to make more noise during mating season or when the female wombats are in heat.

– When wombats are angry they make a hissing sound. Quite similar with the snake’s hiss, but more louder and defined.

– When they are roaming around looking for some food or when they are eating they make a grunting sound similar to a small pig.

– When they are frightened, threatened or ready to fight back a wombat that angered them, they make a low growling sound.

– They can also make loud, hoarse coughing sound. They usually make this noise when they are taking a dust bath or when they’re simply hanging out with other wombats.

– Wombats snore when they sleep. Though not all of them and not all the time.

– Mother wombats and baby wombats make short hissing sounds to communicate with one another.


And those are just some of the various sounds and noises that a wombat makes.
