Dear wombat lovers, brace yourselves. A grumpy wombat in Australia is winning the internet right now thanks to a video posted on Twitter. Jolene Laverty was out taking a walk through the city when she passed someone on the street who she wasn't expecting to see.
Wombats are night-owls who normally spend their time chilling out in forests far from people, but here was this guy out during the day, surrounded by people. Then here comes Jolene with a camera in his face? He was clearly not thrilled about the situation and had no problem letting her know. People watching the video can absolutely relate.
Looks like a dog mated with a cat, or vice versa. O_o Big teeth? Does it bark or meow? :P— Tom Flowers 🎧 (@TomFlowers) January 13, 2018
LOVE HIM!!! ❤️— shane 🏳️🌈 (@shanecenters) January 13, 2018
Going for a stroll but not afraid to throw down if he can’t get a moment’s peace. I get it, little man. I get it.
Never saw anything throw a "do not even try me" vibe while being so adorable!— 💕 Random Chick 💕 (@southercandy) January 13, 2018

"I'm walkin' here!"
Wombats always put safety first. Use the sidewalk, kids.— Shiro Kabocha (@jdubya65) January 13, 2018
I mean this young man clearly has designs. Designs that I would pay to fulfill. He knows where he’s going and what he wants and what he’s doing, and I support that. I dream of a day when I can walk side by side with a wombat on the sidewalk— Jordan Oloman 🦆 (@JordanOloman) January 14, 2018
I’m from U.S. and I don’t get it. Where does he belong? Do kangaroos walk the streets as well? Is that why all your screens have steel bars across them as well? Because of Wombats and Kangaroos? Do they smell? Attack dogs? Just curious.— Sightation📎🐾 (@sightation) January 13, 2018
Can't tell if a wombat is a small bear or a large hamster— 1 forrest 1 (@skrrrtvonnegut) January 13, 2018
That’s how I am before my first cup of coffee. I can relate.— Shannon #IDONTMIND (@jodfoster) January 13, 2018
