Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Thor: Love and Thunder star Tessa Thompson says she went "wombat crawling" while filming the movie in Australia.

Thompson and the Thor: Love and Thunder cast arrived in Australia in January.

The actress previously said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that it felt surreal going to a country with low COVID-19 numbers and said she felt like she "should take requests from people, like what I can do for them as their proxy in Australia."

On Monday, Thompson said she saw Magic Mike Live and experienced Australia's wildlife.

"I went to Magic Mike Live. No one requested that; I just went. It was a masterpiece," the star said. "It's so good."

"I went wombat crawling, where you look for wombats at night with this special blue light," she added. "I fed kangaroos, I did mountain biking, I went horseback riding, I saw Tasmanian devils."

Thompson posted a video on Instagram in May of herself petting a kangaroo.
