Despite being mostly peace-loving and herbivorous, Wombats are responsible for more human deaths than any other animal in Australia. Thanks to their tough rear hide, low center of gravity and a tendency to come out at twilight, these 70-90 lb marsupials can act as launching ramps for cars (and have been known to survive!)
Wombats are quite stubborn, and if a person reached for a clump of grass at the same time as a wombat did, he would find his hand or arm the victim of a strong wombat bite. I'm not sure if they have poison in thier mouths, but I am guessing yes.
