In severe cases, wounds can be seen from the top of the head all the way down the wombat’s back.
Wombats are territorial by nature, which can lead to disputes.
Injuries can usually be seen on the back or rump area. The wombat uses its bony back plate like a shield when it gets chased into its burrow.
It can look very similar to mange due to the fur loss or open wounds, however the back on a mangy wombat is the healthiest area.
