The third release in this cute series depicts a baby echidna. The echidna is native to Australia, and can be recognised by its spiky coat and rambling walk. This endearing mammal has a long snout which functions as both a mouth and a nose, and feeds by using its long, sticky tongue to collect food.

The echidna has very short, strong limbs with large claws, making them powerful diggers, and is also one of only four species of mammal that lay eggs.

Previous Release: Kookaburra, Possum
