Wombat weather forecast?

Phil was such a sweet little wombat, survivor of many operations on his leg, bashed up by the other wombats… how could we not give him carrots? Except that the carrots lured other wombats, who decided they loved carrots too. And Phil grew brave enough to defend his carrots, biting the back and neck of any wombat who tried to munch them first. Until yesterday, when Phil carefully chased away all but one, Grey Grey, young, female. He waited till she was deeply engrossed in carrots and then… mated, I think, is the most discreet way of putting it. And then looked smug. Why chase a female for three days of leaping and biting, which is how wombats usually mate, when you can lure them with carrots?
