• Apparently wombats in fire effected
areas are not only allowing other
animals to take shelter in their deep,
fire-resistant burrows but are actively
herding fleeing animals into them.
We're seeing more leadership and
empathy from these guys than the
entire Federal government.

    • The stupid thing about this is the idea that 1. Nobody cares which is not true get off your high horse and 2. Members of the federal government have burrows in the middle of the wild that they can move animals into away from the fire but they choose not to out of selfishness

    • Wombats cant herd animals into their burrows they are very nearsighted and mainly focus on digging and food while "herding" has not been observed by scientists they predict its nearly impossible due to their poor eyesight but they have observed wombats letting other animals seek shelter in theirhome
