1. Lady luck. Let's be honest, this can play a big factor!
2. Find your inner ninja. The quieter you run the better. Running on your toes helps, as this reduces the "thudding" sound of your feet hitting the ground.

Let me introduce to you “The Wombat Wranglers”........
Dr David Taggart (Tags)
Alias = Speedy Gonzalez
Tags has worked with wombats for 18 years and can tell you pretty much anything you ever wanted to know about the animals. He is the fastest runner to ever grace a burrow filled paddock - generally all you will see of him when he is chasing after a wombat is a puff of dust. "Ándale! Ándale! Arriba! Arriba!”
Hello, this is Mishelle from Monarto Zoo.
A few weeks ago, I went on a research trip for the Southern Hairy Nosed Wombat. We set up camp in a shearing shed on a property near Swan Reach. The research team have been working with the wombats on this particular property for over 15 years and in this time have gathered lots of information about these wombats and their habits.
