Wanda the wombat is the first animal Itchy meets when he arrives in Australia, featured in (Book 4) “The Heat is On”. She is called Wanda because in Australia wombats are known to go walkabout.

Wombats are known to be nocturnal (they forage for food at night). They live in burrows but are well known to use someone else’s burrow as well as their own. Wanda is also very untidy but can run really fast, around 25 miles an hour if she is in danger! They are quite sturdy animals and are related to Koala Bears, although they don’t climb trees like koala’s do. They can also swim very well.
