Flatnose Giant Wombat

This is a sketch of today's flatnose giant wombat.

The Flatnose Giant Wombat is an animal that evolved from a prehistoric Zygomaturus that survived and remained mostly unchanged. It inhabits Eastern, Southeastern, Southern, Central, Southwestern, and Western Australia. It is a herbivore, feeding on grass, leaves, berries, and shrubs. It is the 2nd largest marsupial alive today, about 4.9 feet tall, 8.2 feet long, and weighing about 1100 pounds.

This is a size comparison of a human with a flatnose giant wombat (Zygomaturus Darwinii).
