Meet Ringo

There is nothing more Ringo, our bare-nosed wombat, loves more than carrots! The boisterous boy was born in August 2013. He was found as an orphaned baby and adopted by WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. Ringo can be found raising havoc at Wallaby Cliffs, though he is often out and about in the Zoo meeting his adoring fans.
