London, Mar 6 (ANI): Aussie marsupial, the wombat, has proven itself to be useful after its droppings were turned into paper.

The paper, which is either green or gold depending on when the excrement is collected, has been launched by an Australian company that previously made paper from kangaroo droppings.

Creative Paper’’s Darren Simpson said wombats are much cleaner than kangaroos, making it easier to make the product.

However the poo is only collected and used from animals in captivity.

They”re very territorial, the Daily Express quoted Simpson as telling the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

In fact what they do is leave their droppings as a form of saying, ”this is my area”. So if you remove it, they have to keep putting it back, he added. (ANI)
