The Wombat’s Scat
In wombat terms, a scat refers to a wombat’s feces. With the wombat’s scat it just shows how unique an animal a wombat is.
A wombat scat is cubic in shape it ranges in size to be 2-3 inches. It can be mistaken to be a brownie or a chocolate nugget. But this is not the main reason why womabat’s feces is unique. What’s unique about the wombat’s scat is that it has a distinctive smell. The scent of a wombat’s scat is unique to the wombat who have produced it.
The reason why a wombat’s scat has a unique and distinctive smell is because of their poor eyesight. As we all know by now wombats are nocturnal animals and at the same time they have poor eyesight. When they go out at night to look for food, it’s hard for them to identify which is their own burrow, once they come back from looking for food. Since all burrows look all the same. Here’s where the scar plays an important role. Wombats leave their scats beside or near their burrow’s entrance. And because each wombat scat has a unique smell and only the owner knows the distinctive smell, they are able to identify if it’s their burrow or not by smelling the scat located beside the burrow’s entrance. In that way, they will not get lost or go inside the wrong burrow and be able to find their own burrow.
That’s how unique a wombat is. Up to their scat or feces, it’s still unique.
