I am currently 30 years old.
On average a Wombat in the wild would live to 10 to 15 years and on average 20 years old in captivity, however I am believed to be the oldest Bare-Nosed Wombat in captivity.>I weigh in just under 40kgs.
I love riding around the Park in the wheelbarrow to check out whats going on. I also enjoy squeezing in an afternoon or even a morning nap whenever I can.
