“It’s my party and I’ll eat veggies if I want to!” … is what Jimmy the year-old wombat is saying. Probably.
The plump, precious marsupial recently celebrated his first trip around the sun at the Australia Zoo. And for his big birthday bash, he opted for a fresh and healthy feast with the woman he wouldn’t be here without: his mom Poa.
Poa and Jimmy dined on a specially arranged veggie plate of corn and sweet potato, and they sniffed out a few gifts during Jimmy’s big day.
The zoo told PEOPLE via email that Jimmy is still very much a momma’s boy, spending his days following Poa around their enclosure.

He also has the bad habit of jumping on his mom when she is trying to nap. Good thing he is cute.
Happy Birthday, Jimmy!
