Animal Of The Week – Echidna

This week, let’s have a look at one of our Australian animals, the Echidna.


They are fairly common across Australia including Tasmania, though higher density populations are found on islands where foxes do not occur (e.g. Kangaroo Island and Tasmania).  You can learn more about them on this website.  Tasmania seems to be one of the easiest places to see them.  And finally, here’s a short video clip about echidnas.
