Wombats, the new pet sensation
Actually not, this is just Patrick the Wombat absorbing his daily ration of female attention.
At 84 pounds (38 kg) and 29 years of age, Patrick is the world’s oldest and largest known living common Wombat (Vombatus ursinus). Patrick has lived nearly his entire life at the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria, Australia. He was hand-raised by the owners after being orphaned as a baby.
