Echidnas


videoEchidnas are so cute. I know that they are prickly like a porcupine but the waddle around back and forth, to and fro, and it is very endearing. They also have really long tongues that they use for catching insects to eat (kind of like a frog!) The picture is one that we saw in the wild...it was curled up hiding from us!

  1. I'd never even heard of an echidna before. They're so funny and cute and weird looking.
    What do you think it means that the hair is "modified?" I want to pick it up and hug it - do you think that's it's natural defense against humans?
