Meet Shrek, The Furless Wombat Baby

Australians, unlike the rest of the world, are currently dealing with the winter season in full fury. The Kilmore Wildlife Rescue Center near Melbourne has collected numerous baby animals who were orphaned, as shorter days mean more cars and animals on the road at the same time.

A particularly unique case is Shrek, the furless wombat baby who relies on blankets to keep warm. One of eleven young animals to be rescued this week, Shrek lost her mother to a car and will need to be taken care of for the next two years.

Shrek lost her hair as a result of stress and lack of nutrition, just like another bald wombat that was rescued in Melbourne in the past.
