Another Echidna

This one showed up during the humid afternoon last Saturday. They obviously don't mind the heat.


  1. Fabulous! It's been so long since I spotted an echidna in the bush, you're lucky to have them as visitors. They don;t look too shy either. I must smell funny when I'm bushwalking.

    1. They are a bit shy, but here in Gippsland there are plenty of them. You usually see them along quiet roads looking for ants in the exposed soil, but I've even seen one along the freeway near Warragul. Fortunately they don't often get hit by cars - they tend not to linger on roads, unlike the poor old wombats. Thanks for your comments Ves.
