AUSTRALIA -- Meet the world's largest living wombat.

His name is Patrick, he weighs 84 pounds and he's 29-years-old.

Patrick has lived nearly his entire life at a Wildlife Park in Australia.

He was hand-raised by the owners after being orphaned as a baby.

They tried releasing him into the wild a couple of times, but he couldn't hack it because he's been pampered too much.

Ever wonder what a baby wombat looks like? (see photo below)
