Cuddly Wombat Enjoys Belly Rub in Canberra Sun

An adorable wombat named Merindah rolled around in the sun while enjoying a belly rub from its carer in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory.

Footage by carer Lindy Butcher from Canberra-based animal rescue organisation ACT Wildlife shows the scene.

In a caption on Instgram, Butcher said she doesn’t “interact with Merindah too much these days as we start the process of getting her independent of me in anticipation of her release in a few months. But I couldn’t resist giving this luscious belly a rub this morning.” Credit: Lindy Butcher via Storyful
