    World, meet Patrick. He’s 29 years old and single, and today is his birthday. He's the world’s oldest living #wombat

    Warning! This is a serious dose of Friday cuteness from the ‪#‎NationalTreeDay‬ team. Patrick the Wombat is the oldest and largest known living Wombat at the grand age of 29. Looks like he loves a hug. He is well cared for at Ballarat Wildlife Park and we wish him a happy belated birthday!

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.

How can you not love this amazing creature??? I even like saying "wombat" - WOMBAT, WOMBAT, WOMBAT....

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
