Where are wombats found
Excavations in Australia have uncovered the enormous jaws of a diprotodon, an extinct giant marsupial. Local authorities recently found the fossilized bone of the giant wombat, which is around 50 centimeters long, in the southeastern region of Monaro, according to paleontologist Matthew McCurry from the Australian Museum in Sydney. The area in the state of New South Wales is considered to be rich in fossils.
The diprotodon is part of the Australian megafauna, a group of very large and heavy animals that lived on the continent thousands of years ago. This includes giant kangaroos and marsupial lions. According to McCurry, the pine is not the most significant fossil Diprotodon find. But that it is so complete is rare, emphasized the scientist. The find therefore comes from a young animal of the herbivorous giants.
Largest marsupial that ever existed
According to the museum, the Diprotodon was about four meters tall and three tons in weight, the largest marsupial that ever existed. In pictures it resembles a bear with its dark fur and rounded profile. The pointy ears and flat nose are reminiscent of today's Australian wombats. Aside from looks, diprotodons have little in common with the distantly related cute pouch mammals, McCurry said.
It is estimated that the four-legged friends died out sometime between 49,000 and 7,000 years ago. So they inhabited Australia at the same time as the first humans who arrived 65,000 years ago. It is unclear why the giant wombat perished - due to environmental changes or because of the people who exterminated it with his hunt. (dpa)
