The echidnas came visiting my home from the One Tree Hill Regional Park in January 2014. In September, they came back looking for love. Very cute, very beautiful. They wonder around with little concern but often stop to bury themselves in unlikely places...like my gas mains. Echidnas (and the platypus) are the only egg-laying mammals, known as monotremes and can live up to 50 years.
