Echidna

1 Feb

A quiet Sunday afternoon at home and the dog alerted us to a visitor.  A quick look in the back yard and I found we had an echidna visiting.  This is a different echidna from last week.  He was happily wandering around and once he got used to the sound of the camera clicking away he ignored me and continued on his way exploring the yard.

One thing I did learn is that echidnas can move rather quickly, especially when they are on a mission.

Look at those feet.

Interestingly, he didn’t seem to want to eat these ants.  They were most unhappy at the intrusion and were climbing all over him, he just seemed to ignore them and continued on his journey.

Finally, Velcro came over to see what I was up to.
