Wombats are quadrupedal marsupials, from Australia. These small, stocky, furry creatures resemble little guinea pigs, but they are much larger.
The wombat Patrick is the oldest representative of this species living in captivity. And certainly the prettiest!
He lives in a nature reserve in Ballarat, Australia. It’s huge!
Female wombats carry their babies in pouches, like kangaroos.
They dig holes with their sharp claws where they spend hot nights.
