The short-beaked echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus) is covered in fur and spines (quills) and has a distinctive snout and a specialised tongue that it uses to catch its prey at a great speed. When threatened, the echidna will curl inwards, leaving only their sharp spines exposed.

The short-beaked echidna is one of four living species of echidna and the only member of the genus Tachyglossus. Like the other extant monotremes, the short-beaked echidna lays eggs; the monotremes are the only group of mammals to do so.

Did you know echidnas are named after the "Mother of monsters" in Greek mythology and are sometimes known as spiny anteaters?

A wild shortbeak echidna, taken in Swifts Creek, Victoria.
