Being Australian/Tasmanian I have to say a wombat burrow although I know you have no wombats there..

Are you going to tell us? As I would guess some sort of animal burrow.

Eventually, maybe. ;-)

Like Tony is always saying on his ongoing comic strip. “Stay tuned” All I am missing is his grayed out right arrow!

You are always sending me to the search engines, Tony! ;-) Do Wombats really burrow?

Do wombats burrow?! You’re going to have a hard time living down that one!

Wombats are the world’s largest burrowing mammals.

Oh… I knew that… Since it was Tony commenting I must have read Wombat and thought Tasmanian Devil! Oh wait… From australiananimals.net:

“The Tasmanian devil is found in Tasmania an island state of Australia and lives in old wombat burrows or small natural caves.”

Guess there is no saving face on this one!

Interesting that the the TD has to resort to Binky and relatives old housing?

TD’s only have short arms & legs so they aren’t very good at building houses so have to resort to wombat holes.

Come to think of it I’ve never seen Binky or his friends in a burrow. They must be the upper class of wombies

Well of course we’re high class Wombies! Though we sometimes burrow just for the fun of it.

And the most trusted source of wombat information on the net is. . . ? (The Wombat Information Center of course! Everything you ever wanted to know about wombats. And more!)

Well Jan really almost has it. We don’t have Grizzly bears here in Southern Oregon, but we do have Black Bears, (some of which are brown). We also have occasional wildfires that damage trees at the base, but don’t kill them. As the tree grows and heals from its wounds, often a triangle shaped opening is left at the base. I have looked, even crawled into a few and it is amazing how much space there is sometimes. The pregnant bear finds one in the fall that seems to fit her and crawls in to hibernate. The cubs are born while she is hibernating, usually in January or February. Those marks on the tree are from her claws marking her territory.

It is always fun to come across one of these big enough to get inside when out in the woods with kids. After explaining exactly what it is, you can say something like “I wonder if she is still in there with her cubs”. Then quickly crawl inside and proceed to yell and scream like she indeed was there. Then be silent for a few minutes before exiting to the the ashen faces of the kids. Always good for a big laugh… for the adults at least!

Well I was going to say it was a home for a polar bear but I knew that would be too ridiculous. Scaring the kids like that is a bit naughty – how do you know that there isn’t a bear in there? One of my favourite books is Never Cry Wolf and the author crawled down a hole to be confronted by a mother wolf with her cubs. But he just backed out and obviously lived to tell the tale. So hopefully if you ever have such an encounter you will meet a mild mannered momma.

In the summer you are completely safe as the bear and cubs leave in the spring and don’t return. At least that is what I think. Never really looked into it. Maybe I should?

Maybe you should just in case!! It depends on how dangerously you want to live I guess!
