Meet Patrick, the world’s oldest living wombat at 29 years….. oh and he also weight 87 pounds. Patrick lives out his days at the Ballarat Wildlife Park located in Australia, where he’s currently a mascot for the park. When he is not sleeping in his den, he is pushed around in a wheel barrel so he can give hugs to park guests.
Patrick almost never made it to see 29, as he was pulled from his dying mothers pouch. He has been hand reared ever since which is why he is so friendly with park guests. The park will honor Patrick later this year at its 10th annual Wombat Day.
