Since 1986, Patrick lives in the same place - "Ballarat Wildlife Park", in the Australian state of Victoria. Since the settlement, wombat has become the object of attention of staff and visitors to the zoo. And so it continues to this day. Life expectancy is 15-20 years old wombat. Patrick is the oldest of the wombat now living. To a record of 34 years, and that is how much spent another record holder, Patrick left for another five years.
