Pockets of Canberra are abundant with Australian wildlife but the beloved wombat can be one of the bush capital's more elusive residents.
Belconnen residents may have been lucky enough to spot one of the furry mammals taking a stroll through Page on Saturday morning.
Jolene Laverty captured a video of a curious wombat covering some ground along Belconnen Way.
She said the animal was heading towards St Matthews Primary School about 6.45am.
"He looked really healthy and strong, just a little lost," she said.
"He was determined to get wherever he was going, and wasn't bothered by me much (except to growl when I got too close)."
A number of residents had contacted ACT Wildlife as of Saturday morning.
It appears it's not the first time a wombat has been spotted in the area.
It's not the first seemingly lost animal spotted in Canberra over the past week.
Last weekend a cow was spotted on the edge of Weston Park in Yarralumla. He was later identified as Herb from the nearby Yarralumla Play Station's mini farm.
