A delight to see

This echidna was seen in a sheoak (Allocasuarina) patch being a bit nosey about all the work underway in the Link’s Fitz-Stirling area. Though rarely seen, their fresh scratchings are quite common across the area, suggesting these delightful animals are surviving well. As they are a monotreme and therefore lay eggs, they are a great reminder of how special Australian wildlife is.
