Daily Cute: A Wombat Love Story

When photographer Andreas Jackwerth vacationed in Victoria, Australia to help at a school camp, he had no idea he would stumble upon a lovable wombat named Douglas. The school camp took in the orphaned Douglas, and Jackwerth had the pleasure of meeting him during his vacation. While their time together was short, Douglas still holds a special place in Jackwerth’s heart.

Who am I now more in love with? Andreas, the dear sweet man or Douglas the irrepressibly cute baby with amazingly gentle use of massive looking claws, who cannot take no for an answer to his request of love me love me love me

He was orphaned so I am glad they took him in.
Remember we all know this is not the typical pet . He's so adorable I see it must have been hard and they probably didn't know how to possibly rehabilitate him. So be it. He is loved and taken care of in this case and darling.

Thanks for sharing!

Haha! Bright idea for a good cause, and they even look cute in their "swimsuits"!
