Wow, that is a seriously cute echidna. It looks fluffy!! I had no idea that Tassie echidnas were different to our mainland ones. Great spotting and info. : )

This is absolutely stunning. It looks like it's in snow... and I'm guessing nothing could be further from the truth since you're in the Kimberley somewhere! Just gorgeous. I hope I see one of these one day.

Hi Carolyn. I have asked around and done some research, and I believe your grub is an Emperor Gum Moth caterpillar (Opodiphthera eucalypti). These caterpillars are large, beautiful and colourful but I think pink ones are unusual. I have found some pictures of pink ones but they are all in New Zealand where the moth has been introduced. I have included some links here for you if you'd like to take a look. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opodiphther...

This one is from a blog by a primary school class in NZ - they hatched the caterpillars themselves. http://room15cts.blogspot.com.au/
