Scientists discover why wombat poop is cube shaped!

YES (4).png

Scientists have been baffled by wombat faeces for as long as they can remember and it looks like they MIGHT have uncovered the mystery of why wombats poop in cubes. 

The wombat is the only animal that has cubed shaped poop and no one really knows why.

Scientists used dead (RIP) wombats and put balloons into their intestinal tracts which lead them to discover that the tubes stretch unevenly which shapes the faeces. 

So, there you go - if you ever were wondering.
