He is a little dirty…he ran away and tried to burrow into the ground. Rachel held him for me to take a photo but he was not very clear as he was covered in dirt. Echidnas, sometimes known as spiny anteaters, are quill-covered monotremes belonging to the family Tachyglossidae. The four extant species of echidnas and the platypus are the only living mammals that lay eggs and the only surviving members of the order Monotremata. Baby echidnas are called puggles, and they make a sniffling sound while searching for food.
