Echidna

I come across echidnas quite often but I have never seen one at the base of a cliff overlooking Bass Strait before. It couldn't find anything to eat so it wandered back up the cliff for better pickings.

  1. Nice pics Wampy, especially the last one. I've had no success with these cute little critters. They always sense me an go to ground!

  2. Fantastic and such rare shots!
    Brilliant!
    I'd love to see one that close in the wild!

  3. thanks John and Noushka, they can be timid but I find if I stand perfectly still they will ignore you. Seeing one on the cliff was a special sighting.
