He looks like something out of a movie, but I assure you he’s real.
Meet Patrick, the world’s “oldest” and “biggest” Wombat in captivity at the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria. The wombat was hand-raised after being orphaned as a baby and sadly remains a virgin. He’s 30 years old this year and weights upwards of 80 pounds.
He has lived nearly his entire life in captivity at the Ballarat Wildlife Park as he couldn’t defend himself against other wombats in the wild.
Come on…wouldn’t you just love to snuggle with this guy?
