    Happy Birthday Patrick the Wombat! This 29 year old is the world's oldest living wombat. Given that Patrick has never had children, or any partners in general, probably makes him the oldest living wombat virgin as well! Congrats mate!

Patrick The Wombat. Wombats are something of a scourge in Australia, where they are best known for digging the foundations out from people's homes and destroying any car that hits them on that country's dark, lonely highways. Patrick, however, who hangs out at Ballarat Wildlife Park, won a lot of hearts on Reddit today as the oldest wombat living in captivity.

Paddy the wombat who at 27 years old makes him the oldest of his kind on record. His keeper and lifelong friend Stuart Parker, who grew up with him at the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Australia, said their friendship was unusual. When Paddy was young, the wildlife park attempted to release him three times, but he kept getting beaten up by other wombats. Picture: REX FEATURES
