We meet a most unusual item of local wildlife...the amazing Echidna.
It is a rare thing...an egg-laying mammal. [The other such animal on Earth is the Australian Platypus, which lives in the water]. Here is a good information site on the Echidna... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echidna
I am delighted to find one of these shy animals to show Na and Mawin. It has followed its instinctive defensive behaviour by quickly digging a shallow hole into which it has jambed its legs, tummy and head, and would be quite difficult to dislodge in order to show you anything but its magnificently spiked back.
Most Australians would never have seen an Echidna in the wild.
