The Worlds Most Deadly Butt


When stressed I dive into my computer!
Or I READ, and I read, and I read. I love Fiction. Take me away with a great action story. 
 Last week I was reading Warriors Instinct, author, Fiona Quinn. I read her books in Kindle Unlimited, Amazon.

While reading, a simple word I am not familiar with, a city I have never heard of, a song I have never heard, will cause me to fall down the Google Search HOLE.

The graphic above is the book and the excerpt with the word Wombat. 

Just call me Alice, I fell down the Wombat Hole and Oh My Word!

Photos from links provided at the end.

They are Kin to Kolas, can run as fast as a human, their teeth never stop growing.
There butt is their main defense. They dive down a hole, and block entrance with their butts.
The butt is indestructible, and nothing can get in and they are very protective of each other.
It takes six days, about 70 hours for their food to digest.
Native to Australia.

Their poop comes out in perfect squares, and they use the cubes to communicate with each other by placing them in different places. HERE

Last but not least Google Search with awesome photos 
American bequeaths millions to Wombats

I spent an hour one day touring the Province of Siena, Italy with a side tour to Cosmo, Italy because of the descriptions of those cities in a book
Get traveling, its free and fun... I want a Wombat!

Yes, I know about Wombats. We watch all the zoo shows, and the zoos have them and are trying to breed and save their species. They are like little tanks! They are only in Australia.

Wow! Thank you for the education!

Lots of laughter here - of course we know what wombats really are - they are a large concrete block covered in fur. If you hit a wombat with a car (going along at night in the wilderness say) the wombat will likely survive and your car will be wrecked. They are very cute fur covered concrete blocks tho. xxx Mr T

wow interesting... our mama said she would do that too to protect us... the dad said, yes you can! and now the domestic peace is deep in the wombat hole so to say....

Well isn't that interesting. I though they were much smaller until I saw the woman holding one.

Good morning,
I have heard of wombats, I just never saw one before. The wombat the woman is holding is huge. That is funny about these cute critters have a deadly butt.
Take care, enjoy your day!

As an Aussie, I suppose I ought not to comment here - but nevertheless I will, for even I didn't know about the 'deadly crusher' part of their physique! They really are very, very cute, though. YAM xx

I am the same way. Every time I see a city in a book or a puzzle, I look it up and read about it. It's so interesting! And animals are great fun to learn about!

Oh my goodness, I'll probably never poop again without thinking of the wombat's digestive system. And how they twerk their enemies to death ... that's hysterical!

Until I saw this lady holding one, I just assumed they were about the size of my Grace Evelyn. This just made my day!

Chatty Crone said...

Oh my gosh I LOVED this - I love, love. love to learn new things!

My Mind's Eye said...

Wombats are a favorite of mine. I watch lots of Animal programs and Zoo programs. I especially love the Zoos and animal programs Australia. I enjoyed your trip down the Google Wabbit hole of information

Only God could create such an amazing critter with defenses like that.
