An echidna is a native Australian monotreme. They are in the same family as a platypus. This means they lay eggs but they also feed their babies with milk from the mother.
Echidnas live in the bush.
An echidna has a long sticky snout, two small eyes and more than a thousand spikes.
An echidna has a territory of a hundred acres.
Babies are called puggles.
An echidna eats beetles, worms and other insects.
They have many predators. The threats include: dingoes, dogs, cats, pigs and foxes.
Echidnas are interesting because they are one of only two monotremes in the world.
