This little guy waddled right through our excavation works on the edge of the Rosanna parklands at the weekend.
Turns out, he had made a burrow next to the tracks. Our workers alerted our Environment team, who have made him a new home away from the construction.

Check out this amazing Short-Beaked Echidna skeleton! These spiny anteaters are one of only five surviving members of the monotreme order. 
What makes the monotremes special is that they are EGG LAYING MAMMALS!! The only egg laying mammals left on Earth are four species of echidna and the Duck-Billed Platypus!

This specimen is in the teaching collection of the University of Toronto!

Hello gorgeous’

A ripper of a photo from Mt Field thanks to @sianaddison who says:

Did you know that echidnas and duck-billed platypus are the only egg-laying mammals ✔

Short-Beaked Echidna, Tachyglossus aculeatus

The echidna is shy and moves slowly and carefully, but can usually be approached by treading softly. The echidna’s body, with the exception of the underside, face and legs, is covered with cream coloured spines. These spines, which reach 50mm in length, are in fact modified hairs. The diet of echidnas is largely made up of ants and termites, although, they will eat other invertebrates especially grubs, larvae and worms. Any snacks are caught on the echidnas rapidly moving 15 cm tongue which is covered with a layer of sticky mucous, hence the name Tachyglossus meaning 'fast tongue'. The jaws are narrow and have no teeth so food is crushed between hard pads which lie in the roof of the mouth and on the back of the tongue.

Echidnas are pretty smart hey! 😍

This little cutie was spotted too close to the road as Lauren and I were ‘adventuring’ (eating lots and not knowing where we are going equals adventuring 🙊) on the outskirts of Bright, Victoria! I love echidnas so freakin’ much (who wouldn’t right!?) so we had to make sure he made his way to safety, through the wildflowers and then into a neighbouring vineyard! SO.CUTE! Australia has the best animals and I don’t think I’m biased at all! 🌾🦔🌾 haha! @seehighcountry #seehighcountry

Look who i saw from my kitchen window! #omg #socute #echidna #waddlewaddle he had his face buried in the grown feasting on ants #kalbarri #wildlife #australia #westoz and the cutest little feet !
Tried to make friends with this cutie pie yesterday. He was way more into digging up ants than he was into being my pal. I decided I better leave him be even though the snuffling and waddling along made me suffer from major cute overload. He walked right over my boots and went on his way munching ants. #echidna #tasmania #inthesticks #outside #wildlife #nature #friends #australiananteater #cute #cuddly #prickly #spines #nativefauna #hanginginthebackyard #omnomnom
Oh, the visitors we get 🌿 #lovewhereyoulive #wildlife #vineyard #echidna

A member of the species Tachyglossus aculeatus setosus, this monotreme is chowing down on a late lunch of ants. #echidna #spinyanteater #Tachyglossusaculeatussetosus #monotreme #tasmania #cradlemountain #lunch #ants
Day 23 of 30 - What would a trip to Tasmania be without seeing these cheeky devils in person. Rounding out my travels in Australia is a must see wildlife sanctuary called East Coast Natureworld. 150 acres of park to explore with a lot of animals freely roaming the park. You can really get up close to almost every native Australian animal species there is depending on how much feed you have. Big shout out to Chris and the amazing team for there huge passion and dedication for the animals they rescue.

Well, I talked about the platypus recently, so Paul here  figured it was only appropriate I show some love to the other type of egg-laying mammal, the #echidna . ☺

In total, there are four extant species of echidna. Pictured here is #TachyglossusAculeatus - the #ShortBeakedEchidna . It is the most widespread of the echidnas, inhabiting most of Australia, Tasmania, Kangaroo Island, and parts of New Guinea, living in virtually any habitat that supports colonies of ants and/or termites, its preferred prey.

Despite its similar spikey appearance, and its habit of rolling into a ball when threatened, it is not closely related to hedgehogs. The echidna is also known as the #SpinyAnteater, and is equipped with large claws for digging and a long snout and sticky tongue, very much like true anteaters. However, it is not closely related to them either. The platypus is indeed its closest living relative. Their similarities with hedgehogs, porcupines and tenrecs (protective spines), as well as with anteaters and pangolins (ant-eating tendency, long snout, tongue and claws), are examples of #convergentevolution (the same adaptations emerging in unrelated lineages). Something new and interesting that I learned while doing research on the short-beaked echidna is that it also possesses sensitive electro- and mechanoreceptors on its snout, just like the platypus!

What a fabulous time we had @perthzoo today. We finally saw the new porcupine and had a great encounter with some beautiful #bushbuddies up close and personal. #perthzoo #zoo #australiananimals #echidna #aroundperth #perthtodo #perthlife #perthnow #perhzoo2017 #zoomembers
so stoked to have captured this beautiful wee Echidna.  He was busily burrowing into this old dead log, just near the beach at Eden. Cute as a spikey wee lamb :) #lookbutdonttouch #freshlysharpendedcoat #echidna #australianwildlife #australia #nutureporn #nativeaustralian #onlyinaustralia
