At 27 years of age, Patrick the wombat is the oldest known wombat in the world. On average, most wombats don’t even make it past 20. These 4 legged marsupials native to Australia, are something of a wonder for the rest of the world. Sure, they make look like giant rants, but really, they’re the cuddliest, most loving animals. Patrick’s mother was run over by a car when he was just a baby, so the people at Ballarat Wildlife Park adopted him. Since, they’ve tried releasing him back into the wild but with no avail – he keeps coming back.
