So clever, they know....
A very active burrow suddenly stops getting used by the wombat. WHY? Because a fox had gone in and died in the burrow. Wombat's do not like 'scoured' burrows. They rather wait for the ants and maggots to clean out the dead animal. The wombats will then return a few weeks later to clean out the skeleton when the ants, etc have gone. Clever is an understatement for these creatures.
