Jack's owner says the wombat has been with her for six weeks and weighs about three pounds. He drinks six bottles a day and often becomes playful early in the morning.

"He often wants to play after his 3:00 a.m. feed," she said.

The playful wombat is eventually successful in its efforts and is able to claim the glasses off the woman's face as she holds back laughter.
