Echidnas. They’re spiky, slow-moving and native to Australia but there is much more to short-beaked echidnas – also known as spiny anteaters – than meets the eye.
#Echidnas are actually toothless mammals, but they more than make up for it with their long, sticky tongues - 15 centimetres long. Their tongues work very quickly, enabling them to slurp up ants, worms and insect larvae. In fact, the echidna’s scientific name, Tachyglossus actually means ‘fast tongue’.
Along with the #platypus, the echidna is the only other living egg-laying mammal species. Baby echidnas are called ‘puggles’. They stay within the den their mother creates for up to a year before going it alone. 📷 @strangeanimals
