When Phoenix first arrived at Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary in Australia at the end of June, he’d already been through a lot. He’d been rescued from being an illegal pet and seemed exhausted, just wanting a safe, comfy place to relax for a while.
But as Phoenix settled into his new home, his personality didn’t change, and his new rescue family realized that’s just who he is — a sleepy, lazy wombat.
One night, when he was eating dinner, he showed everyone just how far his laziness could go. Instead of sitting down in front of the bowl and eating normally, Phoenix rolled over onto his back, put his head against the bowl and began munching away the best he could.
